Deborah was my big sister with more memories than a person could think of. But every little thing meant everything to me. Being six years younger when little it was a lot. Deborah wrote my Santa Claus notes and put them in the mail box and I would check the mail box and there was a wonderful letter all colored and from the north pole. I came back to the house smiling and so happy. (I was so stupid). We fussed sitting on each other and ran our feet down the bed making a line not to cross. Then yelling for mother that Barbara was over the line or which ever it was and then Deborah would yell. So many funny things. I don't know what I would have done without my sister growing up because we were not close to neighbors. It would have been so lonely. (We were blessed having a wonderful mother & father). All the laughter and fun even as we grew older like going to Hawaii for two weeks and going to Nashville for a few days. And all the telephone calls and telling each other our problems as we got old. ..Thinking I was the one due my bad health would go first I never even thought about Deb would pass before me. I have never cried more than this in my whole life . My heart is more than broken I have been in the bed since she passed. RIP my precious big sister. I love you more than words. I will carry you in my heart forever with all our memories of 60 years plus . SAD. Sister Barbara Harcrow

Barbara Sue, Callie, Wayne and all your family, I was so sad to hear of Deborah's passing. Barbara Sue, thank you for calling. Because our families spent some fun times together when we were youngsters, way back in the Fifties, I have some wonderful memories of Uncle R. C. and Aunt Mildred, Deborah, and Barbara Sue, as well as of Callie and her mom, Juanita. There's no doubt that you all, and I, will miss sweet and fun-loving Debbie, as I always called my sweet cousin. All of you, please know I am thinking of you and send my love and prayers to you as we mourn Deborah's passing together. With much love,

Marlin, Jr.

I don't know a person that was any more ready to meet her Jesus than Deborah . She will be sorely missed by all of her family and friends that she so often kept in stitches laughing at her humor with her. I for one will miss her so much. I WILL SEE YOU IN HEAVEN DEB WITH JESUS WHEN MY TIME IS UP HERE; UNTIL THEN DEB MY FRIEND DANCE WITH JESUS ON STREETS OF GOLD
