I did not personally know Deborah, but had worked with her via phone and email during several sign projects. I enjoyed her optimism and sense of humor and although there really never are words for a time like this, know that she is in my thoughts as you all are as her family and friends. Peace to you.

What a beautiful life Deb was. Thankful for having had a "sister" like her. Thankful for her children, for her "parents", for Steve, that because she touched their lives, her legacy of live, laughter and joy will live all of our lives.
Thankful to God that she believed in Him and the miracle of everlasting life is a reality for her. That is a miracle I want to experience with her....thankful to God for the miracle of everlasting life, because we believe that Jesus is the son of God. Deb professed that...she believed and because of that, she lives.
I miss you Deb, but I know where you are. By faith and the grace of God, I will see you again.
All my love & His promises,
