I’m very sorry to hear of Debbie’s passing. I will always hold a special place in my heart for her as part of our Ladies Fastball Club - we played together for years - in and out of town in Tourneys. She was quiet - mostly- and really funny!!! Deb had a great spirit. Rest In Peace my friend. We will get together again in the Fastball field in the clouds💜💜💜
