    She was a very special person. She made me laugh, when she told me about her antics at Wrestling matches! Lord how she loved them! Although she never actually had children, She was a mother to all the children in her family. In her heart she was their mother. She would tell me all about them, and about how much she loved all the parties and cook outs !! I will always remember her. Thank you for being my friend and you will always be in my heart Kay!

    Debbie was a great person, she had a heart as big as the universe is wide. She would help anyone if she could she believe in family and treaded all the same no matter how they treated her. She loved kids and wanted to have but she could not so she did a lot of babysitting and they became her kids she treated her nieces, nephews and great-nieces and nephews was also her kids. She love to cook and at he family reunions everyone love to eat what she brought to the table. She will be greatly missed by the ones that loved her and I will miss her the most.

    I,ll always remember the trouble Aunt Blanche had getting Debbie to go to school in the first grade.. She would get sick every morning until her mother would keep her home. In 30 minutes she was fine. Her Mother finally laid the law down, Your going to school. She gave up and went to school, Funny now, Was not funny to her Mother..RIP Debbie,,
