I am just now seeing this, and I am so sorry for the family. Debbie and I were really good friends and attended Kernersville Moravian Church together. On Sunday afternoons I usually went home with her after church to a most wonderful cooked meal. We really had some great times together and I will remember her and her family with fondest memories.
