Donna, I recently heard of Debbie's passing. I am heart broken. I loved Debbie. I know she is pain free strolling over heaven today. I met you when you came to visit her when she lived at the group home in Rustburg VA. I will always cherish my memories of working with Debbie. She was so fun to be around and made my day. I loved how she called us all "mama". I will be forever heart broken. I'm so happy I visited her in the hospital before she moved closer to her family.
