Hello, I just stumbled upon this site and am thrilled to see a senior photo of Debra Bustani. I am married to her son, Sean. Until this moment we have NEVER seen a photo of her like that as a teenager. To be deprived of that and then suddenly see it so many decades after your mother has died is an incredible gift for my husband and her grandchildren (our son looks just like her!). Thank you, thank you! If anyone has any photos at all that they could share we would be indebted. Thank you again!

So sorry to hear that you have not seen a photo of a young Debbie. This picture is Debbie, her beautiful smile and laughter I can still hear today. She was full of life and laughter. After High School we lost contact. But she remains in my heart as someone who made me laugh. Bless all of you. I know her brother came yo our reunion. We are having a Hornet Buzz in May of next year. Please come and met all her friends.

I spent a great deal of time with Debbie, Sue Fletcher, Nancy Frawley and Debbie Pierce during our high school years.  We used to ride horses at Square Lake, we would ride till we all got hot; then ride our horses right into the lake, float off when it got deep and all have a great time.  We were in Jean's or shorts and regular street clothes.. We didn't 'no stinkin' bathing suits cause when we finished swmimg we would just lay on the grass talking and laughing till we dried off.  The horses loved it and would just hang around relaxing while we talked teenage girl stuff and laughed and laughed.  We even had a rather elaborate funeral at her house one day when we were hanging out and her pet hamster died unexpectedly.  We even managed to make her laugh that day.  She had the most beautiful eyes, a loving spirit and a fantastic smile which she was quick to share with everyone she came across.  She was a sincerely sweet person who always brought joy wherever she was.  The only pictures I have of Her unfortunately are only in my mind with the memories of these great/fun times we shared.  She dressed impeccably and her hair and makeup were always perfect!  The Hornet Buzz will be May 16th of 2015.  The good Lord took her waaaaaay too soon.
