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.
