Clay & Wendy, Shannon and family,
I’m so sorry for your loss. The first thing that pops to mind when I think of Mrs. Debbie is her big smile. Nothing but fond memories of her. Praying the Lord comforts you during this difficult time.

I have known and loved Debbie for 43 years. When I was pregnant with my second son, my husband was attending a funeral out of town. As luck would have it, I went into labor and Debbie was happy to take me to the hospital. Once there, she was able to sit with me in the delivery room. Any one who knows her, knows that she loves to talk. So...there I was in labor, focused at the clock on the wall and puffing my breaths as I was taught to. All the while, Deb was telling me that I could just go on ahead and yell, because she knew how much it hurt and not to hold back just because she was there. This went on until the doctor came in to check me and asked her to leave the room. After telling me that all was good and as he was getting ready to leave the room, I grabbed him by his white coat lapel and yanked him in real close. I said to him through gritted teeth that I just couldn't take this much longer. He promised me it wouldn't be much longer and tried to yank away. I said that's not it. I love her, but I can't take the talking any more. Please help me, Doc. He said that was the funniest request he had ever had. We laughed over it. She came back in to tell me the doctor though it best that she wait outside for a while. Bless her, Lord, she had a heart of gold, but I just couldn't take it anymore. All joking aside, I loved Debbie so very much. She has been one of the most faithful friends I have been blessed with. I love you and will miss you so much, Debbie. Rest in peace, my dear friend.
