I am saddened to hear of the passing of Deborah. I have nothing but pleasant and cheerful memories being raised and educated with Deborah on Whitman Creek. She was always a beautiful spirit, Even though I have not seen her for over 40 years, I know had I run into her before her passing she would have greeted me with a smile and a hug. My deepest sympathy goes to her family, especially husband Leroy and her brother Walter.
