  6. Dear Deb’s family and friends,
    I was fortunate to work with Deb when she worked at Health and Human Services. She was always bright and cheerful. I never heard her ever complain. I then recently saw her a month or so ago at Scooter’s Coffee House. She was as sweet as ever. I am so sorry of her passing. She was a wonderful, kind woman that so many people admired and liked. May the Lord be with you at this sad time.
