I had the opportunity to work with Deb when I moved to 1st shift at Bryan Health. She was always so helpful and had a positive attitude. Her life was cut too short.

This just breaks my heart! Deb was such a sweet, sweet soul. She will be greatly missed. I'm picturing her in Heaven now reuniting with those who've gone before her. We will miss her smile at the dental office.
