    My condolences to the family on the loss of your loved one. I got to know Deborah and Rodger doing my children’s tenure on the Peewee mighty Mike football League. Been in 1997 I took the job with WCPSS on Rock quarry road and worked in the same building as Deborah. There I got to know her on a professional level. She was passionate about her work. And she dearly loved her family. Maytime bring you peace to your broken heart.
