    Gary and family, I and very sad to read about Debbie’s passing. I would like to share a scripture that could be of comfort to those who miss her, Corinthians 15:26 says “The last enemy, death, is to be brought to nothing” by God. what beautiful words for all of us whom have lost a loved one! God has also promised that we will see those we have lost again (John 5:28,29) Hold on to these promises as they will come true, I will include you and your family in my prayers.
