     I offer my sincere condolences for the shockingly sudden loss of my sister-in-law Debbie Kikic to my brother Mario for the loss of his long loved and dear wife and to Debbie s two sisters for their great loss as well of their dear sister.
     She passed way too soon in her life and will be greatly missed by all.
    Debbie and Mario were high school sweet-hearts and had a long and happy relationship. They made a life for each other and their love lives on in each other s memories and spirits.
     Debbie was unfairly burdened with physical problems that she tried to overcome through help from medical doctors that did not fully work. Her last trip to the hospital involved a postponed operation and complications including from just being compromised herself and being in a hospital setting for extended time all that ended with her sudden death after getting her operation very late and this was a huge shock to everyone.
     Mario will never forget her, her path with him in life together and their memories and plans made together.
     She is resting now in a good place and lives on in Mario s heart/mind/spirit/soul.
     I am truly sorry for you passing Debbie and we all offer our deepest regrets because of this terrible loss. 
    Our regrets --  cherished one/dear woman/beloved wife/loved sister and dear sister-in-law and cherished friend to many.
     Rest in peace now Debbie as you are surely in a good place with your family already departed in heaven.  John Kikic

    I am so sorry and saddened by the loss of my sister-in law Debbie. Mario's high school sweetheart, together for over 41 years.  I can't imagine you two apart. Mario fell in love with Debbie early on.  He talked about this beautiful girl with red hair. Mario has been a dedicated loyal supportive husband and the last number of months have been hard for Debbie and Mario.
    Debbie loved her job, took care of her sisters, loved dogs, loved Mario and was kind and supportive to those who reached out to her.  This is a tragic loss at such a young age.  Mario will be lost without her.  Their love will live on in him. I am always here for you Mario.

    Toby called me with the sad news Mario this morning.  My heart aches for you.  We had a short but wonderful acquaintance together.  I still think of you both when I wear my necklace!  I am just getting over hip surgery so am not out and about, but my thoughts and prayers are with you both.
