    I've known Debbie for 30 years! She worked at United Carolina Bank and I helped her get out of eyeglasses and into contact lenses. Her eyes were beautiful. So was her soul. Such a great lady. I also got to know her sister, Teresa Bolton. I'm sorry Debbie is gone from this life and hope the best for her children.
