"Debbie there are no words in existence that could describe the beauty of your soul. Your friendship was one of a kind. You were my sunshine in Home Depot, you made the days bright when they were dull. You knew how to put a smile on my face and lift my spirits and knew when they needed to be lifted. I will forever miss my sunshine, and I will look for you in the sky whenever my day is dull. It was more than a pleasure to have called you my friend. Love always, Cheryl"

"I thought of you today, but that is nothing new.
I thought about you yesterday and days before that too.
I think of you in silence, I often speak your name.
All I have are memories and your smiling face in my mind.
Your memory is a keepsake from which i'll never part.
God has you in His arms,  
I have you in my heart."

"I have so many memories with you, I cannot pick just one. I wish I could have helped you somehow. I wish I asked more questions. Your face is one of few I hope to see when I walk in that store. So funny, so sarcastic, sweet and silly. You knew when I needed a moment and you would force me to take it. You were amazing. Always making me laugh. With your super sweet and 'appropriate' pet names. And the looks you would give me when I'd order my sub without the roll on Sub day.. every time. I don't have our home depot family to talk to daily and get through the passing of such an amazing woman with. So instead I will remember our memories we had together at the front end, outside and everywhere in between. I've already made jon go to different home depots instead of ours because I am not ready to see the hurt on our friends faces. You were such a big influence on so many people. By far one of the biggest reasons I was able to keep sane in such already insane job. You aren't hurting anymore. You aren't tired. You can rest and look down on us and laugh at how silly we are. While using some fun choice words I'm sure. Still cant believe this. Miss you lady."

"You may not be here today. But forever in our heart you will stay.  Best friends live forever in the memories that we keep. When someone you love becomes a treasure of gold...    And that what Debbie was always to me.  We laugh, we cry and joke around.  I'll will miss her smiling face.  Because special friends are hard to find, Hard to LOSE and impossible to FORGET.  True friends are never apart maybe in a distance,  But one day we will meet.  For now you will always remain in my heart."

"Those we love don't go away
They walk beside us everyday
Unseen, unheard but always near
Still loved, still missed and very dear"

"Debbie I will miss you so much! You will always be remembered ,never forgotten . It's so hard to accept that you are gone. You always were so caring and tried to brighten everyone else's day instead of taking care of yourself. You were a great person Debbie"

"I've lost close family members over the years. It was very painful and emotional. But this is the first time I've lost a friend who I saw almost every single day for the pass 4 years of my life. Debbie was one of the first people I met when I started #homedepot1601. We clicked from the very start. With our witty ways and sick minded sense of humors we became close. Every Monday at work she was the $5 sub queen, went around the store taking orders. At one of our Store Meetings she did a skit about a "hose-mister" and I had to pour a homer bucket full of water over her head. It was hilarious, I still giggle when I think about it. Every Christmas she would wear her snowman hat, expect this past Christmas because she lost him. She sat across from me in each staff meeting and I would always do something to crack her up in the middle of Aaron talking. When ever her and I needed to vent we always would meet at "homer park" to let it all out. Debbie always smiled even when her days were blue. We would sing on the front end, have fun with the cashiers (as they were looking at like we were cray cray) but we didn't care. She is amazing and I miss her so much. So many memories I have with her."

"What a beautiful person Debbie was...inside and out.  I will never forget all the great times we had growing up, and in college.  I'm at a loss for words, but I know she'd just say, "Hackett...move on!".  Leave a chair for me, Debbie...I'll see you one day, and you know we'll go and give 'em all hell!  I love you to pieces...Rest in Peace dear friend...  Until we meet again...  <3 Judy Hackett Bryant"
