I have so many wonderful memories of Sunday afternoons either going to Debbie's house or Debbie coming to my house. We went to church together and sang together - even created a little singing group.....I think it was called the "Good News" singers! :) We rode the school bus together over our old country gravel roads and enjoyed laughing, talking and just being together. I had the honor of being a bridesmaid in Debbie and Danny's wedding. We all were just babies!! I will forever cherish the sweet memories of our times together. Debbie will forever be in my heart!

I will always remember 4th of July trips to Never Springs, family dinners at each others homes, Christmases at our house after the one at Granny's. I remember crawfish boils in Spring and jello shots on New Year's Eve. There was always music laughter, food and fun.
