Before Sailors Valentines, Debbie had another passion: honeybees!

We always enjoyed the quotations Deb added to her emails:

"And God promised man that good and obedient wives would be found in all corners of the world." Then She made the earth round, and laughed, and laughed, and laughed . .

In 2014, Debbie Freeman was diagnosed with ALS . . . Lou Gehrig's Disease.   Mutual friends told us recently, "Deb will keep making sailors valentines until she can't. . . and then, she'll have her husband glue the shells in the box."

Debbie Freeman passed away in November 2016. She leaves behind a loving husband & family, and many, many friends. She was a blessing to us and will live on in our hearts.
