Annette, there are no words I can say or express to make you feel better. I can't comprehend what you are going through, I know your mom meant the world to you, and you to her as well. I have so many memories at mama Debbie's house during our high school years. She was my second mama for many years and no matter how long it had been since I seen her, she would always pick back up talking to me calling me her daughter. She was a kind hearted, loving, caring woman. She will always be remembered that way to me. I wish I could be there Saturday for you. I am here for you and I love you friend.

One of the best memories I have of my sis is when she got to come to Washington State when Fred and I lived there. We got to share a wonderful week together along with our mom Opal. We laughed and cried and held hands a lot! Debbie enjoyed a glass of wine in the evening with Fred and I. It was called Double Dog wine. My sis reminded me all the time how much she enjoyed that week and the glasses of Double Dog wine we shared. I miss our weekly calls. My fur babies miss talking to you too. Cheers my beautiful sis. I love you with all my heart. Always and forever. 💜💚

Annette, Sorry to hear about Debbie. We hadn't seen her in a long time. We heard that she was sick from Mama Louise. If there is anything that we can do, let us know. You are in our thoughts and prayers. Maybe we will get to see you soon. Love, Cheryl and Victor
