I am so sorry to hear that Debbie has passed away. We were very good friends as children and throughout our school years. We went to church together for many years and our parents were friends also. I haven't seen her in many, many years, but she was a very sweet and caring person. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. God Bless you.
