Words cannot express our sorrow to you Roy and the family. Debra was my best and dearest friend. We raised our children together and starting raising grands. I truly do not know how I will not be able to talk to her daily but with Gods help and families we will get through this. Just remember all of the memories we have made together in these last 38 years of camping, fishing traveling and playing games. We love you and we are there for you and the family
To the Family,
I was very sorry to hear about your loss. I know you will miss her very much, as well as cherish the many memories. It is times like these that we need comfort and support, and I look to God's Word for both. I find scriptures such as 2Corinthians 1:3,4 which shows how the "God of all comfort" will give you the courage and the strength to cope. Psalms 55:22 assures us of God's love by encouraging us to throw all of our burdens on him, and both John 11:25 and Acts 24:15 speaks about the resurrection hope to life here on earth, and finally Revelation 21:4 says that soon "death will be no more".
I hope these scriptures help you as they have for me. My thoughts and prayers will be with you at this most difficult time.

There are no words to express the loss of a wonderful person like my aunt Debra. She was there the day I was born. I spent my whole life just sitting and talking to her at the kitchen table drinking her sweet tea. No matter what was going on she always had had a smile on her face. Aunt Debra you will be missed, but I feel much better knowing that I have you looking down on me and my family. Love you
Billy, Jessica & family,
I am praying for all of you as you grieve this great loss. I am praying for God to cover you with his Grace and Comfort and to fill your heart and mind with sweet memories. Love in Christ Kathy Welch
