I would like to extend my sincere condolences to Mark, Tasha, and Traci, and the rest of the family. Deborah was a sweet lady. I can still remember the sound of her laughing back when you all lived in Piney Woods. Just wanted to let you know that I love you and you are my forever Piney Woods family. May the good Lord continue to bless you and give you His strength.

Love,
Nena (Smiley) Griffin and family 💜
