I was sorry to hear that Debbie passed away. I would always see her in the mornings at McDonalds near the VB courthouse. Such a sweet person, she will be missed for sure.

Debbie and I would chat at the drive thru at McDonalds. She was always so pleasant. I didn’t realize she was a graduate of Kellam. My co-workers in the Commissioner of Revenue’s who had the opportunity to know her, all had pleasant comments.

My Sister, I’m so sad for you to be apart from your family. I have many special memories you are part of that I hold dear. My mind will always go to you on my beach excursions; my happy place, a love we share!
You will forever be in my heart. You are dearly loved and greatly missed. So grateful this life is not all there is and this world is not our home; by the grace of God it’s but a temporary dwelling. Until we meet again…
Much L?VE,

For the past two years, my children and I would see Ms. Debbie every Friday for happy meals at McDonalds. She was always so kind and became our friend. My kids knew her by name and would roll the windows down to say hello. I just drove through this week wondering where she was and am so saddened to hear of my friend’s passing. We will miss her encouraging attitude and joyful presence. She always brightened our Friday! Please send condolences to her family. We are praying for you as you grieve.
