I am so sorry to read of Debbie’s passing. I met her when I was a school social worker. Many times she donated her son’s used toys for others to have and enjoy. I found Debbie to have a heart of gold, and so understanding of the less fortunate. Heaven got a good one when she arrived on its doorsteps!
