I will always remember Debbie for how she looked out for my children. Whenever I'd see her or she called on the phone, she always asked "How are my munchkins?" or "How are my kiddos?" referring to them as her own. She loved sending goody bags over via Randy in order to spoil them. She was a truly caring person and will be greatly missed.

Debbie will be missed by so many but I know that I will miss her laughter and all the talks we will miss.

Cherished memory: There are so many; I can remember sneaking off to the strawberry patch or the gully to hide so we wouldn't have to do the dishes after the BIG Sunday meals granny would cook. And don't get me started on the brownie story..... Debbie, Aunt Debbie will be so missed by so many but I just know she is really enjoying her new home with her Heavenly father and with my daddy and granny and paw paw. Till we meet again...... I love you Debbie.....And please don't make any brownie's!

I will miss Aunt Debbie. She was always there for me no matter what. She was always the one person in the family that I could count on to be there just to listen since Grandma passed away. I'm gonna miss talking to you. I know that you're have a ball now with Daddy , Grandpa, and Grandma Cox in heaven. I love you always.
