  4. David, Nic and family, please accept my deepest condolences. Debbie was a dear friend and I will miss her. We had great fun singing our way through high school. It’s been great reconnecting with her on Facebook. She used to help me pick out my glasses frames in her office. She was truly a wonderful person. I am so sorry. 🙏🕯️🫂❤️

  5. Debbie was a great sister who always put God first in her life. I wish I could have spent more time with her near the end. She will be greatly missed by all that knew her. I know I will see her in Heaven when it is my time to go home. My prayers and thoughts are with the family at this time. Debbie I love you very much…..
