Dear Keith, Terry and families, I know your hearts are broken, I am speechless. I do know Deb is in Heaven with her Mom, Dad and Byron, and she is definitely dancing!!! Deb was so full of life and fun and she lived life with such a vigor with her sharp witty comebacks and humor! She left so many memories with so many people. I will keep you all in my thoughts and prayers and remember all the shenanigans we all got up to!
I have had Deb on my heart for awhile, now I have you all on my heart ❤️ ♥️

Where to begin.... I met Debbie on Memorial Day weekend 1977. We became best friends and have remained so. She was my ‘big sister’ and she always said, “You know you’re one of my own.” Terry & Byron were my ‘big brothers’ for many years and I remember when Keith had his 5th birthday. I spent so much time with Betty (Mimi) & Claude at their house and at the beer house-great times and unforgettable memories. We lived together in many places over several years and shared so much of our life together. Country & Western music and dancing was a major part of our lives together. It’s so hard to imagine life without Deb. My prayers for Terry and Keith and their families. Sebastian was the final love of her life. ❤️

Keith and Terry our thoughts and prayers are with you all at this heart breaking time of life. One thing I remember about Debbie was her laugh I enjoyed hearing her as well as reminding me of her mom Betty. My mom Louise Rogers sends her prayers for the family.
