Dear Sweet Debbie, In our conversations I usually ended it with I Love You Debbie, so much so you asked why and I answered because I Love You. I wanted to have you hear it often. Especially when you were sad. The last time we talked and it was a wonderful talk, I said I will talk with you later not knowing it would be our last time. So I am saying now I miss you and I Love You Debbie, Always. Your Big Sis Marlyn

Debbe was the most inspirational person I've ever known. She motivated me to reach so many goals and was always my biggest supporter. She brought the best out of me and I truly loved her for that. My heart is broken and I will miss her everyday. I hope you are reading this from above, Debbe, because I want you to see me make one of my dreams come true on the 16th that you've helped me so hard to reach. I wish you were here so we could also finish the many goals we talked about together. Love always, Kenny
