It seems like yesterday that I received the not so wonderful hat back that had been sent to you. The hat brings fond memories of the many Sunday nights playing cards at your mom's house. Ms. Debbie was special because she brought so much laughter and enjoyment. She made Diana and myself feel so welcome when we visited you.

You are in our prayers during this most difficult time.

She made broken look beautiful
and strong look invincible.
She walked with the universe on her shoulders
and made it look like a pair of wings.
Yes, Debby Gray left a little sparkle wherever she went.
On your last and final flight, sweet friend, soar high ~ the
angels await you and will sing with joy.
I love you and will miss you, Debby!
I'll see you on the other side.

Larry, Gloria; My prayers are with you as you walk through this most difficult time and the days ahead. Heaven is rejoicing with Deb as she laughing with her friends she is reunited with. Her love knew no bounds and I will surely miss her late night talks and giggles! I always looked forward to her birthday calls, she never forgot a one. Although many hearts are heavy, she is without pain and with her Lord. I shall see her again someday, until then she will remain in my heart forever.

Deborah I know you are resting in eternal peace with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. You are pain free and enjoying "the life" Jesus promised us all. I will see you again someday and share in that Paradise you are enjoying now. Thank you Deborah for being a very special person to me at a difficult time in my life. I will never forget you and the happiness you brought to me during that time. God Bless you and keep you in his loving arms always. All my love.... Eugene
