I was so shocked and saddened when I saw Keli’s post. I have known you all for many years and watched as you girls became such wonderful strong women and loving mothers so much like Deb. She loved and was so proud of you girls and her grandchildren. She was one of the most caring souls I have known in my life and helped me so much after I lost my beautiful daughter. Her and Doc were exceptional people and I am honored to have had them in my life as friends. She will be missed!! With love always, Gwen

On this side of Heaven it seems impossible to understand why God would allow us to hurt like we do when tragedy happens. We try to find words to help ease the sorrow but we all fall short. There simply aren’t words that help bring understanding to a heart that is so broken. Ashley, my oldest friend (45 yrs), Elizabeth and Kelly, you three were loved by an amazing woman. She gave her life for her children and you became who you are because of that gift. What honor you bestowed on her hard work. What happiness you brought to her with your own families. She sits with Jesus now and oh the joy that fills her soul. Can’t you just see the beauty of her face as she stands in his glory! Debi will be missed beyond measure but praise God because you will be with her in glory again one day! Keep making her proud, keep honoring her by living your best life and never forget the vast unmeasurable love she had for you!
Raising you all up in prayer,
Deborah Christensen-Braid

To the Families of Deborah Duncan Shoemaker,
It is to my sadness that you lost such beautiful soul. I only was acquainted with
Deborah on FB through her daughter’s and Grandaughter. I told her one time maybe we would meet one day, but we never got that chance. I know she would have been a joy to have been around. I know her family will miss her. God Bless I know she will be watching over you from the Heavens above. 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻 The Baxter Family

It’s really tragic to me she passed away so quickly. She was the grandmother of my 2 children Carter Young and Juliet Young. She was always so full of life and joking. She was a very caring person. She held tight bonds with her family that was very important to her. I will miss her truly. My deepest condolences go out to her 3 daughters Ashley, Elizabeth and Kelly. They were all very close to each other. They will all see her again in heaven along with God the Father and our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Love Justin

It was my pleasure to know Debi through high school & as a neighbor in Nassau Bay, Debi was a beautiful lady both inside and out, AND so darn funny! I can see her smile & hear her laughter now. My 3 sisters considered her part of our family and we all enjoyed sharing about our families on Facebook.
Everyday you had something positive to share with us. We will miss you.

Debi, I have no idea what I will do without you my dear friend. Our laughter, our daily morning talks over coffee at 5 AM. Our cruise will never happen but the day we meet again will be a joyous occasion. I love you with all my heart. You will always be with me in thoughts and memories. May you Rest In Peace and spread your the wings I know you so deserved as fly high.

To your daughters: she loved each of you in such a special way and the pride she had was beyond words. May God give you all strength to face the days without your precious mama.

Sincerely,
Debi Douglas
