Deb, even tho we didn't visit or talk the last few years I always loved and missed you especially at Christmas time when I always had you a Christmas birthday cake. One year I had to put two names on the cake because of a new member coming into our family with a birthday close to yours. You did not like that and you told me so. That was our Debbie, you never held anything back. The world has lost a wonderful women, but the heavens have a new Angel. Rest in peace Dear Debbie.
