All my childhood memories of visiting my grandparents in Victoria include spending time with my cousins Debbie and Deana too.
Lots of running around, pickup truck rides, eating catfish and Grandma's homemade bread and doing a few dishes too..
Debbie and I were even pen pals for a few years!
My deepest condolences to Dusty and the girls, to Aunt Betty and Uncle David, Debbie will be so missed. I'm so sorry I can't make it to the service and that my dad won't be able to either.
My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

So very shocked and sad to hear about Debbie's passing. Lots of childhood memories of the country cousins and the city cousins. I know you will all miss her very much. We were trying to work out a plan for my dad, Uncle Joe, to come to the services but he just can't make the trip at this time. And sadly, my mother in law also died this week in Dallas. May this be a time of celebration of Debbie's life and peace to all of you as you rally together. We will keep you in our prayers.

My deepest condolences to Debbie's husband, daughters and all her loved ones. When I worked in Victoria, I had the pleasure of getting to know Debbie. A gentle kind loving business woman with a wonderful laugh. May she rest in eternal peace & life. I admired all that she was a part with her hometown of Victoria.
