    Dear Debbie and her family,
    I met her daughter, Debbie, when I was 15 years old and seemed to never lose complete touch with you all, thanks to google. I am sorry to hear about this. Debbie was ALWAYS kind and loving to me. She said I was like a son a couple times. She was a very loving person that I will never forget. God Bless you Debbie.

  2. Omaha NECrystal and Amber,
    My heart aches for you two. The loss of a mother is a great weight on one’s heart. Hang onto each other through your grief. I know that your mother loved you. I’m sure the heavy burdens she put upon her heart in life have now been lifted and she has now found peace. With love from me, Terry and your red-head cousins.

    I am so sorry for your loss. I have known Deb for years, and used to babysit you kids from time to time. I am so saddened to hear of her passing. She was a very special lady, one of a kind. She will be missed.

    I will forever call Debbie friend, confidant, and special. I pray for all who are left behind to carry on without her special presence.

    We Had Some Fun Times Before School When I Would Give You Rides Crystal. I Miss Those Days. Your Mom Was Such A Sweet And Caring Person, And Cool As Hell. I’m Sorry That She Had To Leave You Girls Behind,.But She Is In A Better Place Where There Is No Suffering. You Girls Were Everything To Her And She Loved Every Moment That You Spent Together. If You Girls Need Anything Let Me Know. I’m Here For You Even If You Just Want To Talk. Take Care Of Yourselves For Your Mommy. I Love You So Much Even Though We Don’t See Each Other Much These Days. I Will See You On Tuesday.
