Deborah has often been on my mind since high school.  She exemplified a certain grace under fire in several situations that she was thrown into and I have never forgotten.  I hope she had a wonderful life and I am sure she will be much missed by family and friends.  I did not know her well, but she left a lasting impression on me.  Dorothy (Dexter) Milner
