I'm very sorry to say that Deborah Greer-Costello, better known as Debutant, passed away earlier this week from the leukemia that she had been fighting since 2005. I never met Deb in person, I only knew her through her writing and through her sister, my friend Stephanie Stradley, but it was easy to see what a vibrant and interesting person she was. From her death notice, it's clear she accomplished much in her too-short life, including a lot after she first got sick.
As per her request, I'll be visiting the Gulf Coast Regional Blood Center shortly. I ask you to please do the same as well. Rest in peace, Debutant.Posted by Charles Kuffner on May 23, 2009 to Blog stuff
