I'm so sorry to hear about Debora. We went to high school together and she was such a sweet and caring friend. I saw her at Wal Mart a few years ago and we caught up with what was going on with our lives. She'll be missed. My prayers are with her family and loved ones.

My husband and I just got the news and are heartbroken. Our prayers are with all of you. Debora was a valued friend. We worked together when I first moved to Georgia 7 years ago. She was the first person I met that had a real "southern" accent and I absolutely loved this sweet, gentle woman with the big laugh. We still met to have dinner and shop when she was at her North Augusta home. And she always gave Ramazan a big hug when she shopped at Costco. We will both miss her greatly.

I am heart broken to hear of Debora’s passing.
We worked together at University Hospital Lab for 30 years.
We both retired in 2017 and kept in touch with texts.
Debora was such a sweet soul and always had a smile
for everyone even with all her health struggles. I will
miss her! Prayers for her family.
