There's nothing that someone can say at a time like this to ease the pain, but you to know that I love you all and I'm hear if you need a shoulder or an ear. I love all of you and I pray that over time it gets easier.

Dear Winter and Johnnie,
I have always held you all close in my heart. I'll never forget the good memories of eating good food, decorating our homes and all the laughter we had. I know Debbie is in a better place now with God. Love you all.
