Debbie was a sweetheart. She did so much, especially working with Lisa Braccio in sending our soldiers a little something from home. She will be missed dearly.

This is truly heart breaking, Debbie was a beautiful, kind and gentle person who did so much for others. I will always remember her kindness and support during Matthew’s deployment. My sympathies go out to her family.

Debbie was such a wonderful person. She will be missed in the halls of Pilgrim Church preparing for choir during the service. She always had a smile and great attitude. Sympathies to her family for this huge loss.

You were a kind soul. Our Shaw class of ‘67 has lost a treasure. Glad I had the opportunity to share with you how you poured into my life and you didn’t even know it. You touched many. I hope they touch many. Rest.
