Jeff and the Lambert Family, Warren and the Higdon Family, We were so sorry to hear about Debbie. Every contact we encountered, she had that smile on her face. even the night she and Warren were at Chili's eating and she was looking for Jeff,,,,, she had seen my truck in the parking lot with the L&L tag on the front, by-passed us twice,,, I finally asked her if she was lost....Debbie with a straight face said she was looking for Jeff that his truck, she paused and said that is your truck.... we all got a laugh. Our prayers are with you all.
Edwin and Debbie Hightower
