Among many things, Debra will be missed for her passion and adventurous spirit. Her love for family was always evident. We had so much fun when she came to Alaska and will always treasure those memories.

Debra was a good friend. We sought one another out after losing important people in our lives and helped one another through difficult times. I will miss her dearly.

You were born with the capacity to love the world more than you ever loved yourself. God called you home to wash you in His love, quiet your soul, and ring the bells as you received your wings. Love you always. Aunt Melinda

Debra.. my oldest sister. I always looked up to you growing up. You always had your nails done red which matching lips. You had the perfect skin tone that I wish I had inherited. You loved big and you loved hard. I remember the family gatherings at grandmama and granddaddy’s and I always clung to you. I remember meeting Scott the first time... I miss you and I wish I had seen you these last couple years.. our circumstances changed but you were loved by me. Aiden was looking at your picture the other day and saying how pretty you are.. & now you’re the pretty angel ... no more pain for you, sis. Rest in heaven. ❤️❤️

Debra I will miss you very much I already do. You were beautiful funny and the sweetest sister in law any person could ever dream of. I know you technically wasn't my sister in-law but in my heart you were and always will be. I thank God for Blessing me with your presence in my life. Until we meet again I will miss and love you with all my heart!
