Debra and I became friends years ago when I was her mothers hairdresser in Canton. That friendships continued through several years and she was my maid of honor when I married.
My husband’s Navy career moved us away and she and I lost touch with each other.
She was a dear sweet woman and I mourn her loss!
Deepest sympathy to Gertrude, Chris, and Debras husband and son.
