I am so sorry to hear this. Debbie, as we called her, and I grew up together at Golden Lake, AR and were very close friends for many years. I will cherish my memories of our days together and will always remember her fondly. My prayers are with her family and friends.
Knew Debbie growing up in Wilson. I send my deepest sympathies to her family. She was always a sweet girl and good friend. Barbara Weaver
Debra and I had shared a lot in common, starting with our dad's, the love of Chihuahuas, nursing at Methodist and helping me with my mother when she had a stroke. These are just a few of the things that we bonded over. Even though I had not talked to her in a while I feel I have lost a very close, dear friend. Prayers for her family. Rest in peace with our savior.
Sorry for your loss remember Debbie mostly from when she was a young child. Prayers for her family Debbie and I were first cousins.
