I first met Debbie when I was in grade school in Ms. Ferris’s music class, Debbie was an assistant and I thought that she was beautiful and that never changed. Our families have known one another for a lifetime and there’s no way to put into words how much this hurts. Our hearts are with the Holt family and we extend our deepest condolences.

Debbie will be missed dearly. I can remembered when I was little my daddy Lamar Cook would take me and my brother Mathew Cook to visit Debbie, Steve Holt, Stephanie Barton Holt and Chad Holt. Debbie has earned her wings and smiling.
Prayers to the Family!
Sending ❤️ Love,
