Happy Heavenly Birthday Deborah!
Posted by Aundrea Cole on August 7, 2022
Happy Birthday Deborah! You’ve only be gone a year and I know until I step back into Brooklyn, that this all will never feel real to me. August had become a hard month when Nana passed away on August 9th. Mckari’s due date was the 9th and I pleaded with the doctors to ensure me on the 8th. So here we are the 6th is my dads bday, then the 7th is you, the 8th is Kari, ended by our loss on the 9th. We never had a boy in our immediate family and I’ve always felt like he was a gift from Nana. The boy everyone always wanted and the one and only Great Grandson of Evelyn Frye. He helped us make it through those hard days and he is still doing the same today. I talk about you all the time! All of you! He will know how special you are by the significant role you played in my life. I know Nana is getting that Carvel Cake for today and I’m so happy that you are all together. My one promise is that I promise to share all the good things I remember that we did with Krystal. That was a part of your life she didn’t get to be a part of. We will visit North Shore Towers, and my memories will become hers. Enjoy your birthday in your heavenly home, where sickness and pain do not exist. When we have fulfilled our purpose on earth, we will join all of you in our heavenly home. Don’t worry about us, enjoy your rest. We accept what is, and know we will all reunite again!
Love You

Today has just been one of those days. Really April and May. I was going through my email and found several from you. Nobody calls to check and see if I'm taking my meds, or how everyone is doing. So many times I picked up the phone to call you and then I remember you're not here. I have so many things I want to talk about. You said you would be my mom, since she was gone. And then you left me too. I am so alone, but I know that it was your time to join Nana and Mommy. I would give anything to sit at your kitchen table with you and mom and argue about ow much tip I am leaving! You guys always make me laugh. Missing you with all my heart.

Missing my Cousin dearly.

Dear Mommy,

I cannot believe it has been a full year without you in this world. It does not feel real to me. At times I feel like I am back in college in Albany and that you are home in Brooklyn, except for the fact that I cannot call to hear your voice or wake up to texts from you anymore. It is so hard to think about the times you will miss: my wedding, the birth of your grandchildren, my graduation from my doctoral program, and countless more events I have yet to think about. When I get sad, I feel your kindness and love around me and I know you are still here in spirit. I know you will be with me now and always. I hope you know you will never be forgotten. Everyone I meet will know how truly amazing and wonderful a person, woman, and mother you are and the impact you had on everyone you encountered. I am who I am because you raised me. I am thankful for all you did for me. I will always continue to strive to be a woman like you. I just want to make you proud. I love you so much mommy and miss you every day.

Love,

Your 5lbs, 7oz baby girl

I can't believe it's been one year since you left us. Krystal is so amazing and her strength has given me the courage to keep moving. I miss our text's, I miss you yelling at me for not taking my medicine or checking my numbers. You are the only one who can yell and say my name and sound like mommy. I miss the days that we did get to speak and catch up and my calls for advice. I remember how mad I got when you left the house at night to play lotto and go to STARBUCKS. Before I knew it you were rolling down the street, LOL. Most of all I miss coming home and heading straight to your house. I haven't been back home yet but, I'll visit soon. I'm writing a lot because I miss you so much. I am happy you are at peace with mommy and nana. Kiss them both for me. Love you always,

I can’t believe she’s gone because I wasn’t ready to say goodbye to my dear friend Deborah. I will miss her so much!!! Every Saturday morning we would talk about our battles with Multiple Sclerosis and the current new medicines that just hit the market. I’ve never known anyone who was so smart and knowledgeable about MS. Deborah encouraged me to keep fighting, remain strong, and most importantly to always pray and stay close to God. I have so many wonderful memories of Deborah and I along with our two friends Sandra and Marie. We affectionately named ourselves the MS Crew because we always hung out together. We celebrated our birthdays every year at TGI Friday’s in Brooklyn, went to several MS meetings and events, but only if lunch was included and almost every Friday met up at NYU in Manhattan for our support group with other MS friends. We would talk forever sharing life stories, playing dominions and monopoly and laughing the whole time . I have so many pictures of us together & precious moments I will always cherish. To My MS Sister Deborah, although we are apart, your spirit will live within my heart FOREVER. Until I see you again my friend. Love Sandy

I will miss my cousin Deborah and her beautiful smile. Over the years I admired her strength and determination. I will always cherish memories from our family celebrations and family reunion.

I will miss my Cousin Deborah dearly. I use to get excited when her and Cheryl came down for the summer to Ellerbe to visit Grandma. It's hard to believe both are gone. I will always have those memories.

There are not words to describe how heartbroken I am. She was strong and feisty even while she had MS. She never allowed herself to be a prisoner of the disease. She shopped in Kings Plaza all the time, she took public transportation if she needed to, and she even tried to get my mom to go to yoga classes with her(which was hilarious). She has been my support system since my moms passing, and I don't know how I will go on without her daily calls, and text messages. She wasn't just my aunt, I lived with her for many years and I thank her for the years she raised me and sacrificed her freedom to be a mom to her niece. I can only do now what she did for my mom, and make sure her baby "Krystal" always has me in her life. She has joined my mother and Nana in heaven and claimed her heavenly citizenship. No more pain and no more tears.

her Life

The early years

Deborah was born to Evelyn Lorraine Frye and Herbert Correa on August 7th 1954. Followed by a sister named Cheryl in 1956. They were both raised in Catholic School and were a part of two amazing families, The Correa's and the Frye's. I was told they spent their summers with their Grandma Pearl Frye in North Carolina. Later on they moved to a beautiful two story home in Crown Heights on "Maple Street", where they spent their most of their teenage life. Deborah, leaves behind one amazing Daughter, Krystal Folk, One half  sister Pamela Correa, two nieces Aundrea Cole and Jacqueline Madden, two great nieces, Shawnasia Escoffery and Lashaunah Escoffery, and one great nephew, McKari Bowman. She also leaves behind a plethora of cousins and aunts and uncles. I hope that everyone will share some stories and photos. The love we have for her is eternal. We will never forget how she touched our lives.
