  1. A wonderful traveling companion who made local and overseas trips led by Stephen – with back up by John Henry as required – such fun. I’m only sorry we won’t share them with you again – but you’ll be there in spirit always Deb! Love to John Henry from Marie Lakos

  2. Farewell Deb! An amazing person so happy to call friend . Beautiful service! She would’ve liked all the adjectives used as they described who she really was!

    Deepest condolences to John Henry and all the hearts that Deb touched.

  4. Unfortunately I was unable to be at service but so glad to be able to view his webcast. What a beautiful and elegant service. Just a little understated…the way Deb would have loved it. Our Western Melbourne Tourism Board was meeting at the same time as the service – so in the universe our spirits were aligned, and so glad we able to pay tribute to her in our meeting and remember her amazing style, energy and contribution. We have a regular agenda item in our meetings call ‘True Gift’ and for us this was Deb. All our thoughts and condolences with you John, family and her many friends . Vale Deb.

  15. Beautiful service for a beautiful lady . I will cherish my memories of working with Deb at City Of Boroondara xx

  16. I’ve so appreciated the streamed ceremony – wonderful celebration for a truly wonderful person – I worked with Deb through our collaborative work (as a member of the DeathTech research team at Melbourne Uni) – her enthusiasm and true support was amazing and even though we only knew each other for a few years, I feel it was so much longer – all the qualities that were raised in the service were spot on – I’m so so glad she was here!

  17. I only met Deb once in my role as National Vice President of the Aust Federation of Civil Celebrants. I was lucky enough to have my photo taken with that beautiful heart. A brief meeting, but a memorable one of a vivacious lady, an outstanding CEO and someone who gave her heart and soul to life. As was said, she made everyone feel special – even if just for a few moments.

  18. A lovely service and a fitting tribute to a wonderful person. A light such as Deb’s can never truly be diminished. It will live on through all of us.

  19. The beautiful Deb …. what a ray of sunshine she was. Sending my thoughts to the family. Honoured to have known her.

  20. I’m still in shock that such a vibrant, smart, funny, charismatic firecracker of a woman is gone.
    It was a beautiful service though – and strangely, possibly the only time I’ve ever considered a funeral too short to capture the size of the subject’s enormous spirit and influence.

    My condolences John Henry.

  21. Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone. The Creativa team are honoured to have been part of Deb’s vision for GMCT and we will continue this forward.

  22. Deb was a wonderful person, a force of nature and an amazing individual, with incredible drive and commitment to her work but also a great sense of humor and a heart of gold. She will be missed by all.
