    Juanita, Yvonne, Elaine & Kim –

    Debbie was a great friend that I will never forget and I was looking forward to seeing her in July. Our Heavenly Father wanted her more than we needed her so he called her home. It has left a large gap in all the lives that she touched, but she forever lives in our hearts.
    My thoughts and prayers are with you now & in the upcoming weeks to follow, love you…
