You were the mom we always went to when we needed straight talk. You always told it like it was. The memory I will share out of hundreds... you calling the coffee shop when we cut school and I answered. You gave birth to one of my dearest friends and stood behind us through many things. I hope you and little Debbie are having a blast! You were an amazing force of a woman xx

I am so sorry to hear about Debbie. I last saw her when we first knew about Covid, I took her a couple of masks my cousin made. I went to her house. I had only seen her one time since I lost my daughter Debbi. (Your mom was with me). That was 11 years ago. I will keep all of you in my prayers.

Sharing n your sadness. My deepest sympathy for your loss. I’ve known Debbie since 7th grade. We have remained close for close to 50 years. She was so much fun to be around. I’m so grateful that god blessed me with her friendship. I’m going to miss her so much. The memories we made will be in my heart forever.

There are no words to describe the lost of your mom. You’re in a club no one wants to be in. You were invincible to me & the strength you’ve shown me is life changing.
Mom I am never alone, you are forever with me. You took a piece of our heart when you took your last breathe. For that we will never be whole. I appreciate you more than you ever knew. I can’t wait to see you again. Miss you beyond words can express. Love you to the moon & back.
You’re baby girl.

I write this for her family. I met Deb through working with her. Deb had a lot of fight in her, worked at a hard job even though it seemed to be painful at times. But, she had a big heart and really cared about people. She had a magical charm with dealing with the nursing home residents. She gave special attention to so many. In general, she was a caring person. She loved her family, that was evident. I wish she did not have to suffer and am sad she is gone.

I am so sorry for the loss of Deb. I met her a few years ago when a group of us started doing things (Sandra Holt, Travella, Gloria, etc.) She was such a kind person. I think the last time I saw her was Christmas 2019 (due to her illness and COVID) but I thought about her all the time. Hugs and prayers to you all.
