Our dearest Elizabeth, I cannot express the sorrow I feel at the loss of your precious Mother. She and I were the best of friends as we were growing up. Just about every weekend I would either stay at her house or she would stay at mine. We just did the things that young girls do. Talking, laughing, going places with my brothers. We just had fun together. And after we were grown, though we had very different lives, we still stayed in touch always knowing that we loved each other. I pray that God gives you peace and comfort during this extremely difficult time. Always remember that you have a Knoxville family and we are all here anytime you need us. We love you.

Steve and Elizabeth and the rest of the family, I cannot express how sad that I am in the loss of your precious wife and mother. As I am sure you are doing, relying on God will provide the peace and comfort that you need right now. There is no way to spin it - your unexpected loss will hurt for some time. I pray that memories of Debbie will take the place of the hurt you are feeling right now. With Love, Philip Butler.
