Just heard of Deanna's passing. My condolences to all her family. God be with you all. I spent many days & evenings in Deanna's home. And went on Promise Center trips with her. She helped me through some hard times just by being there for me as a friend.

I used to work at the Promise Center. Deanna was very special to me. I Will miss her. We used to watch movies every Saturday and I think Deanna really enjoyed this time. She was a wonderful person.
