    I’m completely broken to hear of Debie’s passing. We first met in the 7th grade. Our friendship continued. She stood in my wedding (caught the bouquet). She was at the hospital when my daughter was born. She had a smile & laught that would light up any room. And a style like no one else. I love sweet angel. Fly high. 😘🙏🏼😥
