I will forever hold a place in my heart for Debbie. She was the sweetest and most honest person I knew. And always came straight at you with what was on her mind. There will be an empty space in all of our lives but I am so happy to think of her now in heaven laughing and telling it straight. I envision her There with Darlene stirring it up. I will miss her and love her forever.
