Debbie was a good friend. She was one of the first persons to my home when my husband died. We worked together and we made it a point to have dinner together once a month. When we are born, God gives us all a special gift. He gave Debbie the gift of serving. She was a true care giver and she tried to be a help to everyone. I think she gave all she had to give. She loved Travis so much. She was worried and concerned for him. He was the son she never had. I miss her.

She was a confidante, a cohort, a willing listener... a friend in the truest sense of the word. Debbie was the most conscientious person I have ever known, fiercely loyal and dedicated to her family and friends, and serious about being the best employee she could be in any job she had. Who will ever forget her infectious laugh and her sense of fun? Many of us will never get over the shock of this tragic loss. R.I.P, my friend.

We are so sorry for your loss. Debbie will be missed by so many people. I consider her my best friend and will miss her so bad. Debbie had the best heart of anyone I know. She would help anyone in anyway possible. I loved her like a sister. I am so gratful for the good times we had together. I will miss her sense of humor. She left this world way too soon. Life is to short. Jenny, Travis and Billy, I am sure you know how much she loved you. If you need anything, just let us know. I am so glad we were able to spend Saturday night together by having dinner and going to the movies. I will miss spending time together in the future. God I miss you Debbie.

I was saddened today to learn about Debbie. My thoughts go out to Jennifer and family who have experienced such a loss. I know Debbie will be truly missed by all who loved her. I remember her having such a loving and generous heart. She made it easy to become her friend.
We were only friends in high school,
but I will never forget the times we shared and what a dear friend she had become. I will cherish the sweet memories.
I too would love a picture of Debbie.
