We became friends when I started helping her in our 3D classes at the Art Institute of Houston. I think sharing my chocolate covered coffee beans solidified our friendship! I will never forget her kindness. Especially when she helped me see the Pacific Ocean for the first time when we went to Siggraph together for school.

Deborah was an amazing kind person. She always inspired me to be kind to others. I will miss her so much!
