    I am saddened to learn of Deb’s passing.
    I’ve known her since I was a little boy as her brother Robbi was MY best friend of over 55 years and by extension made me an honorary
    “little brother”.
    My love and condolences go out to The Thompson, Morris, Haynes, and Williams families.
    May a lifetime of gifted memories provide the comfort during this time as GOD heals hearts in HIS time and not ours going forward

    The earliest memories I have of my Daddy’s cousin are of Debbie as a mother and wife. Every time I saw her, I saw Wallace and the kids weren’t too far away. I am praying for everyone who loved and cared for Debbie, her children and grands & greats, and siblings as well as our extended family. I am especially praying for Wallace’s strength and comfort. I can’t remember a time when it wasn’t “Wallace & Debbie”. On behalf of the Leech crew, we love you family.

  19. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your Family. Please reach out if you need anything Sonya
