Deborah and I have been close friends for 45 years. We first met in the NICU at Jacksonville University Hospital in 1976. Deborah was a staff nurse, member of the NICU Transport Team and completed the Neonatal Nurse Practitioner Program.

Deborah moved to WPB in 1989 and was the first Neonatal Practitioner to work in the NICU unit at St Mary's Hospital. Deborah quickly gained the respect and admiration of her fellow co-workers and was loved by everyone. Deborah earned the nickname, "One Stick McGriff," because she could usually insert an I.V with the first stick. I started working at St Mary’s with her in 1990.

She was a dear friend and a loving mother to her children, Cornelius, Calvin, Natalie and Natasha. My heart goes out to her family at this difficult time. I miss Deborah dearly. Rest in Peace Old Friend.
