"For the short time i knew Debra, she was this pretty lady, so calm,warm smile on her face, focused and ambitious. She was a brave woman.  Even after the husband's death, at her  tender age, she maintained such a positive attitude in this very emotional and physically trying time. Her faith never wavered; it actually grew stronger.  We thank God for the period she allowed us to be with her, May her soul rest in peace."

"So unbelievable to hear of this news! Debbz, i know you were one girl alive and full of energy for like five people. Though now you are gone, i remain with memories of you at your house in Sony- how generous you were; on the road walking to and from church- when we got hit by a Sony Land rover and you were carrying your second baby Doll...this girl is a survivor and you escaped injuries; when i would make your hair till late and many many more! These will remain in my heart and mind- a memory of you in my life. I thank God for allowing me to know you, albeit briefly. The Lord will continually watch over Kate and Doll. Rest in Peace, Debbz. Anne"

"To the entire Were family.

It is with deep shock that I have learnt of the death of my dear sister, friend, mentor, former employer Deborah Otieno (Mama Kate) She was my first employer back in Sony when she was the proprietor of DAC COMPUTERS, SARE. Through her I became a friend to most of her family members and more so her Mum who used to work at National Bank Awendo and later Kisumu. Even though we parted ways so may years back, Deb and I remained good friends and even later when we met again in Kisumu. She was very proud of me. Rest in Peace dear Deborah. You will forever be missed by me. I pray that our good God will take care of your two beautiful daughters. Till we meet again my friend."
