Debby Bailey Smith

My Aunt Carole was a beautiful lady both inside & out. I remember her laugh & her smile which were always there even in difficult times. She made my world a brighter place by giving me advice when I was growing up & finding ways to help me out when I felt sad or unsure of myself. I love you & will forever miss you in my life.....
