Debbie was part of the "Sue Sisters" when we were in school. She had a sister Sue, I have a sister, Sue, and a friend of ours was also a Sue and had a sister, Terry. She was a great person to know and I'm a better person for having known her and her Sue. Rest in Peace Debbie, much sympathy and prayers to her family at this time and always.
