I am truly sorry for your loss. Our loving creator has provided hope and comfort to help us through such difficult times. Isiah 33:24 promises a time when "no resident will say "I am sick".....John 5: 28,29 promises a resurrection.... Rev. 21:4 promises a time when there will be no pain, outcry or even death......The time will soon come when these scriptures will be fulfilled. In the meantime hold on to the memories of your loved one and prepare yourselves that you may be there to greet them when the time comes.

I was fortunate enough to call on Deb when she was working in the labs in Mitchell. She always had a story or pictures of her grandchildren and children. She was so proud of you all. She is at peace and whole again. May God give you strength during this time. I'll never forget her and I'm sorry for the loss of an angel ~at way too young of an age.

My deepest sympathy to all of you. She loved all of you so much. Her memories will live on in your hearts forever. She will be missed by many. We were all lucky to have had her touch our lives, even if it was for just a short time. My memories include 4-H and High School Rodeo, and I am thankful for those memories which include her pride in her family.

Deb was a very special woman with the kindest heart. She loved her family with all she had. Any time I would ever bump into her (usually at Shopko) she always took the time to tell me about each and every one of her family & show the most recent pictures she had in her purse. She will be greatly missed! Thoughts & Prayers to all of you!
