I never saw Debbie without a smile on her face. The last time I heard from her was to ask if she could bring me food to the hospital as I was watching and waiting on my husband to pass away. The next day she was in the car accident. One of the most caring individual's I have ever known. Thankful to have had the privilege to call her friend.
