Don and children!
I was saddened to hear of Debbie’s passing. I am sorry I did not know I’m time to attend her service! I have sweet, fond memories of the kind and wonderful woman she was! She had a smile that lit up the room! My heart felt condolences go out to all of you! May each of you find comfort in the presence of the Lord!
All my love,

Ms. Debbie was a loving and wonderful woman. Every moment I saw her she was laughing and smiling. Ms. Debbie gave me the wonderful opportunity to teach and nurture children in the Lord at her school. After my interview in 2005 she and her husband, Pastor Don, happily dropped off the curriculum box with bright smiles on their faces. It’s because of Ms. Debbie that I found my calling to teach. I hope that like her I can always have a bright smile on my face oozing with love. I love you Ms. Debbie and I know you are enjoying your big beautiful fancy mansion in Heaven with the Lord! Praising God in His amazing presence that we all dream of. With Love, Kim, Jose, Abby and Allie Vejarano

Our hearts and prayers are with you and your family during this time of sadness. It is always hard to let our loved ones go home when we are still here missing them.
It is a time of grief, for our hearts are aching, but is also a time of love and remembrance of a life well lived.
Every time we had a chance to spend a few moments with your mother she was gracious, beautiful and radiated love and happiness.
She will never be forgotten as she will live on in you and your children and the minds of all the lives she touched with her time on earth.
Her legacy lives on.

Debbie was such a sweet, yet strong Christian lady! She taught me so much about teaching at Stockbridge Baptist Church. She was teaching K5 and I was teaching K4. Her love for those sweet babies was so evident but never came close to the love she had for her family. Heaven is a much sweeter place because she is there.
