I have just late last night learned of the loss of Debbie. I am a sorority sister from Ole Miss, and we lived next door to each other in the house. I am just so shocked and saddened to learn of this...Debbie and I had reconnected in the past 10 years or so and have kept up somewhat through FB and by phone. Curt, I pray for you and your dear children and grandchildren as you try to deal with such a huge loss in your lives. What a special person Debbie has always been, so positive, so upbeat, so happy. I'm glad she was my sister and next door neighbor....many great memories. Praying for God's peace in your hearts.

Dear Parkers and Buschings. I've put off writing on this page because I know that I can't say the right words to console you in your grief at the loss of Debbie. But I can offer you consolation at where Deb is right now. God's ways are not our ways and His thoughts are not our thoughts and we cannot know the mind of God or be His counselor. But we do have His precious promises and we do know where Debbie is and that we can go to join her someday. Debbie was a precious daughter of our Father God and although we can't question why He took her at this particular moment, we know that He works all things together for our good. We love all of you and have been crying with you just like someday we will be rejoicing with you!

Curt, Shea, Jessica and Ben, our family is lifting up your family in prayer before the Father. May the God of All Comfort be especially near to you in your grief.
