A life well lived, a continuing influence, a trophy of God's grace, a wonderful teacher, a faithful friend...
Our lives and the lives of our children were blessed by Debbie's kindness and determination. Your family is in our prayers.
I will cherish the memories I have had with this amazing woman of God. She resembles everything I hope to become. Her love for The Lord was abundant and an example for all to strive to reach. I am thankful for Mrs. Adams for numerous things, but ultimately bringing me to East memorial Christian Academy when my schools doors shut. She is the reason I have a better education, have lifelong friends and memories, and reconnected with The Lord. I cannot thank her enough for her persistence in our education as a student body and her inspiring smile that lit up the room daily!! Love you Mrs. Adams and though it's tough to remember, but you're the one in the better place right now! Shining your light upon us and still guiding us in the right direction!
Mrs Adams you will be always missed. What a impact you made on me and many others. What a awesome teacher and also a Rock Solid example of Christ. My prayers are for your family in this time of loss but to also have peace knowing that she touched so many lives.
I was sorry to hear about the passing of your wife. From reading the guest book I would have like to have known her. Please except my condolences and prayers for you and the whole family in theses times. If I can assist you in any way please let me know and I will see to it.

Mrs. Adams was an excellent teacher, leader, and role model. I could always tell she cared about what she taught, the students she taught, and the God she served. Her faith was evident every day. Everyone who knew her is better for it.

Mrs. Adams reflected Jesus daily. She knew the importance of serving and loving others. Her strong walk with the Father was evident through the fruits she displayed. She surely walked in the light, ran the race and kept the faith. I love you Mrs. Adams! I want to follow Jesus with your passion!
Mrs. Adams thank you for all that you have done for me. When I first came to emca you were the first one to welcome me. You told me that at emca we are all family. Thank for your encouraging words, and your guidance.

Mrs. Adams, thank you for being my biggest role model & making such an impact on my life! You never failed to make me smile, even on my worst days! I love you & miss you so much already.
You never had a bad day! And if you did, you never showed it. You were so uplifting and positive even when you had so much going on. You have impacted so many lives and we should all strive to be more like Christ, just as you have shown the world! You will be missed!!
Debbie, you always had a smile and such a sweet spirit. All the kids lives you have touched through the years just shows what a blessing you have been to those you meet. You will be greatly missed.
I will never forget Mrs. Adams and the influence she had on me as my teacher!!! She was gentle,kind,compassionate, loving and more importantly an example of what a godly woman represents!!! God definitely used her in so many ways when she was at Calvary Christian. I will never forget her "life teaching" moments in English class or to hearing her sweet voice sing in the choir at church. Allie your mother was a wonderful person and I look forward to seeing her again someday.
Mrs. Adams was a great lady and she was blessing to all the lives she touched.
Mrs. Adams there are so many things I can say about you, but I want to thank you for everything you have done for me in my life. You were truly a blessing and always put a smile on my face even when I was full of energy and you had to calm me down. I love you and you will never be forgotten in my life.
Debbie, you're the godliest person I have ever known. I am so blessed to have had you as a friend and a sister in Christ. I will miss your beautiful smile, and your encouraging words. You were always close by when I needed someone to talk to. Your dedication in everything you done, even when you didn't feel good. All of the Wednesday nights helping on the serving line, you were always an encouragement to me and everyone else there. I am going to miss you so much!!! I will see you again in heaven!!! Love you!!!!
Dear Sweet Debbie, Wow! What a blessing you have been to so many. You have always and will continue to be an inspiration to me and my family. No doubt when you stepped into heaven there was rejoicing by you and by those who were waiting for you. Oh, just to think, you have met Jesus face to face. You are so very special and will remain in our hearts until we see you again!
Thank you for directing people like myself in the ways of the Lord. It was something I will never forget. I always loved how you would always share scripture in class. I remember one of your favorites was Galatians 6:9 "And let us not be weary in well doing for in due season we will reap if we faint not". I know you are enjoying Heaven right now!
Debbie, You will be missed so much by so many. Not only did I never hear an unkind word come out of your mouth, but you would always have something nice to say about everyone and every situation. You always cheerfully offered to help others, even when you didn't feel well. I look forward to seeing your smiling face again someday. I will be praying for your family.
Mrs. Adams, thank you for the countless prayers for your students, and for the grace you gave me when I absolutely did not deserve it. Ill always seek to follow your Godly lead. Thank you!
Debbie, you always had the ability to make someone feel better just by simply smiling.. I thank you for your many smiles during our time together.Heaven surely gained an angel.
Mrs Adams, you were a strong woman! Such an encouragement to me! I love you! You will be missed!
Debbie, Your sweet spirit will be greatly missed! You were such a blessing to everyone around you. I will never forget how you were such an example of God's love! Give Jesus a big hug for us. Love, Brenda Taylor
I will miss you always saying " hey son" whenever you saw me and always treating me like one of your kids! Love you and miss you!
Thanks Debbie for your faithful and loyal service to The Lord. You touched many lives as a teacher, Special days at Calvary Christian Academy!
When I was in her English class in the 8th grade, I loved listening to her stories. I remember she had a container of cards she kept from her previous students that had their names, hobbies, and prayer requests from years ago. She told us that she still pulled a card every day and prayed for them. I also filled one out for her and I really believe she prayed for me.
Another story that I haven't yet forgotten was her "rotten chicken" story. I can't remember the exact story but I remember that whenever we used incorrect grammar like double negatives or southern slang she would call us out and say "Rotten chicken." That still comes to my mind from time to time whenever I hear someone use grammar incorrectly.
I will miss that sweet smile that was always on your face! You were one of the most influential women in my young life. One of the most Godly and genuine women I've ever known. Will see you again someday!
