She had Leukemia for 9 years. You would have never known that Debora was sick until the last few years. She always had a smile on her face. A good friend of mine posted, "Thank you Debora for teaching us so much about love, and what's worth fighting for." She really did. She loved her husband, Darin and three children(Acen, Davia & Cademon) unconditionally. I want to be a mother to my children like she was to hers. She showed us all what it truly meant to be a fighter. We love you Deb and will miss you dearly. Today is her funeral, so if you would say a prayer or send up some good thoughts for her family and friends, it would be wonderful.
Mission trip to Nicaragua
In March of 2010, she was going to be admitted into Emory Hospital in Atlanta for a bone marrow transplant. I was her hair stylist, so of course we talked about what she would do when she lost her hair from chemo. Not sure who came up with the idea(maybe her) but we did a girls night and buzzed all of her hair off with the support of friends surrounding her. It was an emotional evening, but having everyone(+wine) there helped her stay strong. Below are some pictures from the party.
Even beautiful with no hair.
Love you Deb. Thank you for the impact you had on all of us.
