I am a friend from the past - the girl next door -- Debbie and I grew up together as neighbors. My sister, Stacy, and I were so excited when Debbie and Tracy moved in so we could have some girlfriends to play with everyday - and we played hard. Debbie and I were always trying to hide from "the little sisters". We had many giggling afternoons together. Unfortunately, I was out of town for Debbie's service, so I was sorry I was not able to attend. I just wanted you to know that she made a very positive impact in my life. Her radiant smile, her love for Jesus, and her love for her family - will forever be with me. Please accept my heartfelt condolences.
Debbie will always be remembered for her big beautiful smile and positive attitude.I will always cherish the times we spent together.Its so hard to say goodbye to someone that had such a will to live. I will miss her dearly. Rest peacefully Debbie!
Deb was a truly amazing woman. She showed me how life should be lived, and in the end, how to die with dignity and love. I've never known anyone so strong, so joyful, so encouraging, so full of love. Her life radiated Jesus like few others. My prayers are with her family. I will miss her and cherish the memories of our friendship. "And occasionally when needed, a star will leave the evening skies and for a short while dwell amongst us." Rest in peace, my friend.
I am very saddened to hear the news today. I worked with Debbie at John Gross Messenger Service 25 years and she was a bridemaids in my wedding. She was always smiling. I remember at the time of my wedding one of her grandparents past away and the funeral was the day before the wedding but she was in the wedding the next day with her beautiful smile on her face. She was a great person! Now Debbie you are looking down on your family and I know you will watch out for them and you will be their angel. A beautiful angel!
Deb was a bright shining star in this world and she will be missed by so many. Deb and I had many, many laughs throughout the years and I thank God I had her in my life for the short time that I did. Rest in peace Deb, love you.
