My condolences to her family and close friends. Deborah was a very kind lady. We met and became friends about 10 years or so ago when she used to enjoy visiting my store (The Nifty Place) in Burgaw. At her request soon afterwards, we became "friends" on Facebook and kept in touch occasionally. I know she will be sorely missed.
