What a privilege to call Debbie my friend! If you knew her you loved her, especially her big beautiful smile. My heart is sad for her family but happy for her to finally be healthy and cradled lovingly in the arms of Jesus! She left an empty spot in the lives of all she left behind. RIP dear friend, I love you, Kathy Nelson

Debbie was a special friend when we were younger. I have not spent much time in that area since then. But when I did visit and happened to meet her she met me with a hug if only in spirit. I shall see that hugging smile again some day. And SO shall you all. Kim C.

Debbie was one of the sweetest ladies I ever had the privilege of knowing and had the sweetest smile, even when I visited her one week ago.  She was so appreciative of everything anyone did for her and her children.  


Read John 14:15 - 21
Jesus said, "I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you. Before-long, the world will not see me anymore but you will see me. Because I live, you also will live. On that-day you will realize I am in my-Father, I am in you and you are in me. John 14:18 - 20 New-International version
Even-though I was an adult when my parents died, I felt a keen-sense
of what it was like to be an orphan. Gone were the two-people who had nurtured me and shaped my life. Sharp-grief gave way to bewilderment, "Who am I now; who knows me deeply yet loves me anyway? The gospel of John recounts Jesus telling His-disciples although the time is coming they would see Him no-more but He would always be a part of them just-as they would forever be a part of Him.
So it has been with my parents. I see now even-after their-deaths, their
example of loving-kindness continues to teach me and guide my-life. That goes deeper than just warm-memories. My parents are in me at a deep-level, deeper than the mind can comprehend and as-deep as the heart. Surely God was their-heart's teacher.
In the same-way I come to know God through the life and love of Jesus. Nurturing that-relationship through prayer, study, giving and serving keeps me forever-connected to the living-God.
Gracious-God, let who we are reflect who You are in all we do. Amen
Because of God's great-love for us, we are never-orphaned.
Grieve-as-you must, not-as-o9thers will tell you is right, wrong or indifferent.  Travel the pathways ahead as-you-need because there is no single pathway for all but each has their own.  God bless you all as you go forward down those.
