Devrone Connor Follow-up

As a small child Devrone came to Albuquerque with HTCSW for surgery.  Although only minor help could be provided due to his condition, he continues to thrive and is now attending college.   Please review this very interesting story where Devrone honors his mother.    Debby Garrison was his host mother.
