Debbie and I grew up together in Miami, Fl. We shared some wonderful memories throughout our grade school years. She loved her music and spending time with friends. There are those special people who come into your life and she was one. You will be missed my dear friend. Love,
Suzanne Stevens, June 4, 2020 Debra was like a sister to me, we worked together for a number of years. She was always ready to help with anything because she was that kind of person. I will miss her and her laugh. Santa Micciche , May 18, 2020
