I can not express the hole in all of our families hearts she has left, but I can\'t imagine the joy she is sharing with all her loved ones awaiting her in heaven. Praying for peace during this time of grieving for all missing her spunky spirit. I love you Aunt Dee.

Deb was definitely one of a kind. From the moment I met her (and the whole family) I felt like I was family. When you look at her you can just see the kindness, caring, and love that she gives to all. She was an absolutely beautiful person inside and out.
I know that this is a immeasurable loss to the whole family and also to friends. I cannot express how deeply sorry I am for the family\'s loss. I do know she will be protecting all of you from above because she definitely had an unending Faith in God. Our family is sending our deepest sympathies to each and every one of you. Lots of hugs, much love, and many many prayers, Mindy, Scott, and family

Just saw Deb. a few weeks ago at the David Bible study and had the privilege of giving her a "Big Hug". She was always so supportive of Operation Christmas Child. Thank you Deb. All my condolences to the family, friends and Vincent Church Family. Love, Joyce Myers

Deb was a light in her congregation. I always felt lifted up when I looked out and saw her face. My deepest condolences and heartfelt prayers to her family.
