The right words are hard to find for times like this but the truth is always best.

Aunt Debra was a wonderful, gifted, creative, funny, smart, caring and thoughtful woman. We will celebrate her life until we too are called home to live in our true home, the mansion in the sky, with our Heavenly Father.

We love you Aunt Debra! Thank You Gracious Father for sharing your precious daughter with us.

~Romans 8: 18 “For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us.”
