    Debbie was a joy to be around when she and I were working for the AARP employment at the Gibson County Health Department. Always said hello and loved our conversations. She was very thoughtful of others and she always greeted each customer with a smile and a hello. She loved when the children came in. Debbie was also one of the best cheese cake makers I have ever tasted. Bless her gentle and loving soul. Bless her family and friends. Bless her loving pets. She spoke about them often. She will be deeply missed. She had a very loving, kind and generous soul. She was truly an angel. For her family stay strong, stay close and always remember that Debbie will be with you always in your minds, your memories and in your hearts. God Bless you all -. Robert Decker
