Debra what can I say . You were so welcoming kind and generous to all our family. We had some fabulous times in your company and you were an amazing host .You will be missed xxx

Debra, you were a wonderful, kind and generous person. I always looked forward to seeing you at our company events and getting a big hug from you. (It was always a good hug since we were the same height. :-) My biggest regret was not taking the time to get to know you better. We talked but it was mostly about work. The photos of you as a young mother and with your family then and now tell a story I would have liked to have known. I will very much miss that opportunity. Rest in peace, sweet Debra.

Having such a short time to get to know Debra, I will remember her as a very warm and kind person. Watching her and Richard work together on a charity event so dear to Debra's heart, I saw two soulmates content and happy to be together in work and in play. At times it was clear they did not need words to communicate. It was a privilege to get to meet her and share in her warmth.

Debra and Richard, so much love shows in the love the two of you have for each other. Tom and I have wonderful memories of BBQ's in your newly transformed yard at your home in Wallace. Of course Debra was the one doing the BBQ'ing! I just stood back in amazement as I don't even know how to light a gas BBQ. Then off you went Debra in to the kitchen to put the rest of the dinner together. Of course you needed no help. Your home was a home to all you came in contact with, so warm and welcome. Then you two made the announcement that you were moving to the Ranch! Whaaaat? Well, shortly after your move we were calling the two of you to come to your place on the Ranch. Of course the answer was welcoming and so we grabbed a few things and headed to the Ranch. Once again, we had a great BBQ and much needed catching up conversation around the fire pit. We love you both and will always hold our memories close to our hearts. In loving memory to an awesome lady. Richard look to the rainbow of life of the love you two have for each other, Debra will always be there with her smile.

Debra, you were always sweet and kind and always showed caring for all around you. Your and Richard's love for each other was undeniable and made wherever you were, somehow brighter. Evelyn and I know you are in heaven. We wish you all the peace you deserve from a wonderful life, well lived. We wish your family all the comfort possible, with wonderful memories of the happiest times. Richard, we wish you comfort and the strength to clear the clouds of loss and sorrow. To carry on to see happy sunshine again, as you know Debra would want. And recognize the path that leads one day, again to Debra’s side.

I will never forget our spunky friend. Though small in stature, she had the heart of a giant. There isn't anything Debra wouldn't do. Rest in peace my friend. I'll see you on the other side.

Debra will surely be missed. I knew Debra through working with her on an account over many, many years where we helped each other quite a bit. She was an awesome lady, always fun to talk to and work with. I am sad to know our occasional conversations are a thing of the past. However, I am truly grateful to have had the opportunity to know her. My thoughts and prayers to her family through this very trying time.

Debra, A fond memory I have of you is an evening we were sitting outside at the ranch and Richard was saying he had put up a 7ft deer fence Did you have any help I asked. "Yeah, Debra helped me. "OK, 5ft 3inch Debra helped you put up the 7 ft. Deer fence. Umm I thought. Not long after that you told us how you had got your extra large boat onto a trailer with Debra's help. "She held the thingy and I was able to get the boat loaded" I'll always remember these stories as examples of how strong you Were when helping any of us. "Those she may be tiny, she is mighty"

Debra, I will always be grateful for the lovely times we spent together with the family. You were the most giving and kind soul, beautiful inside and out. You will be greatly missed and the world will be a sadder place without you in it. Love always Cathy, Liam and Lauren

To my first best friend in Paradise, Ca. Even though we only met in Junior High our time together were some of my favorite memories. From walking to the Paradise swimming pool to listening to Creedence Clearwater Revival and wondering which one would want to date us. Also, being sent home on the first day of eighth grade because you and I planned on wearing hotpants to school, it probably was a good choice of your parents to move to Redbluff because who knows what mischief we would of gotten into.You always seemed so grown up to me and I remember I always wanted to be like you Debbie. May all the love you've shown to all whom loved you help heal their hearts and find your incredible light comforting. I keep having all these flashes of you, laughing and smiling always. Love, Maryann Kellogg Fahl.

You were like a second mom to me, and called me your red headed step-daughter. A phrase I loved. You were the back bone of so many, including myself. You had a huge impact on my entire career. You were my mentor, and I admired you more than you can ever imagine. Your strength, knowledge, drive, and compassion are just a few of the amazing traits of who you were. I miss you and love you, Debra. Thank you for helping me become the woman I am today. You are forever in my heart.

In the House of Eternity Now you are in the house of eternity having left us too soon. The shape of you lingers as a fragrance where the love your lived becomes the love you've left behind. We are standing in the temple of memory holding onto the intangible, and miraculous, standing in the shadow of your absence, waiting for the sound of wings. Your gentle candle light reminds us of our lonesomeness while the inner voice of love shows us your exile from heaven is finally over. Now you are in the house of eternity listening to songs only sung for the beautiful souls who have arrived home. - zayra yves Debra, thank you for your sweet and kind hospitality. You are missed in the hearts of many.

I don’t even know where to start. Our hearts our broken! The world has lost a beautiful soul full of so much life and love! I will always be grateful for the love and support that she gave to my husband Greg, her youngest brother, and our sons Kyle and Matt. She and Greg were very close growing up, leaning on, supporting and loving each other through so many seasons of their lives. If it weren’t for her inviting Greg to come live with her in San Jose so many years ago, I would not have met him, fell in love, found my soul mate and be celebrating our 25th Anniversary in September. She took him and our son Kyle in with open arms and embraced Kyle as if he was her own child. He has so many wonderful memories of times spent with her. I am so thankful to her for giving Greg and Kyle the love and care they needed at that time of their lives! Later when our son Matt was born she was ecstatic. Debra loved babies and she of course smothered and spoiled Matt with all her love and kisses! She was so happy to have a baby around! As she watches over all of us from heaven with her beautiful smile and kind heart, I pray that she knows how grateful I am for her and just as she wrapped her loving arms around my family, I will wrap my loving arms around hers. You will be forever missed and always in our hearts!

Mommy, Where do I start . This was just to soon. You brought me into this world and loved and raised me to be the man I am. You taught me right and wrong you showed me how to always try and make peoples day better. To always pay it forward with good deeds. I found a letter you wrote me in the 5th grade, we had just moved to the Bay Area and gotten through such a tough time. You said everything to me in that letter that I needed to hear today. You told me my first words to you as a child were I love you - those were the last words I ever said to you. You may be gone from this earth but you are forever in my heart.

My Heart goes out to the Bedard and Clarke families. I am very sorry for your loss. This beautiful woman, inside and out, was a wonderful colleague to me, supporting me for over 10 years with her gentle and caring nature. I write this with great sadness over the unimaginable loss of such a lovely lady. I remember once she and I were talking about something I was struggling with and, she said, “Look at me”, and told me that you never know in life so make change even though it’s tough and do the things you want to do and dream about before it’s too late. Those three words came across so clear. Thank you for your kindness and letting me cry to you. And thanks for kicking my ass when I needed that as well. I will miss you. The world seems a little smaller now. I had been meaning to stop in and see you and show off Emelia. I wish I had.

Debra Bedard was an amazing woman and was always surrounded with so many people who loved her dearly. Her passing is such a shock!! Its hard to imagin someone with such heart and personality taken away from her family so soon. I met her and her family through work and she was always a strong woman with so much life. I admired the woman she was and will always remember her as a person filled with life love and strength. I feel like there are no words to ease these families pain. All I can say is I love you all dearly and know she will watch out for each and everyone of you in new way!!

Words can't express how much we're going to miss you. From the sound of your laugh, to your heels clicking on the floor, to you scolding us for swearing too much...our lives will never be the same. You were our mother hen, our mentor, and no one will ever be able to replace you. You have touched our lives more than you'll ever know and for that, we are forever grateful. We will miss you every day but will cherish the memories of you always. Until we meet again. We love you. Your Angels, Meghan, Sara & Mariah

I can't go a minute without missing you and I don't know if that will ever go away. You were an amazing mommy and I would do anything for one more cuddle and a butterfly kiss. P.S. I had some plants delivered today, I instantly felt you telling me not to kill them...I'll try mommy...I'll try.
Posted by R Mireles Browne on 6th June 2017
My heart breaks for your family and friends. I only knew you a short while but you were always kind, friendly and a great example. We always knew we could call you with any problem. Thank you for the time we worked together.... I'm glad I had the chance to know you. Rest well.

I am so sad for your loss. Debra was such a kind soul with a huge heart! Her smile would light a room and lift everyone around her up! I will miss dinners with her! Your smile will stay with me until we meet again.

Dearest Debra, Words can't tell how much you meant to me, But I'll try, so others can see. You were my joy, my life, my dreams, The reason for all that my life means. Your beautiful smile was always there by my side, My best friend, my companion, my pride. I never tired of you being with me. That was obvious for all to see. We were able to spend more time together in our days than most, A good fortune that I was always happy to boast. You loved and cared for me more than anyone could ever believe, Except those who knew best you and me. Now, for some reason, our time together has been called to an end. There's a greater calling for you, my beautiful friend. Why, I just can't imagine. But I have to be willing to wait and see, When together we tend those gardens in Heaven to find out what that reason will be. Until then, you'll always be here in my heart with me; Though in spirit, I just won't be able to see. My love for you will never end. Till we meet again. Love you, Richard

I don't even know where to begin. When I heard the news, my heart saddened. Even though I was no longer around you daily, I will never forget your beautiful smile and blonde hair which always reminded me of my mother. Also can't forget that sense of style always looking classy and lovely. You were so patient and kind and I will forever keep you in my heart and mind. I give my sincerest condolences and love to all who were dear to you and I know you will be watching over everyone. Heaven most definitely gained an angel. Love always, Natalija

The love and compassion you had for life will last forever. No giant will ever be able to fill your little shoes. My heart goes out to all that love you and will forever miss you. Until we meet again keep smiling down on us.

The world will not be the same as this great woman leaves. Heaven will be a an even better place now that she is there. Somewhere over the rainbow a wonderful woman named Debra watches down on us all. We will miss your smile my friend...... Until we meet again. Love Q

-The Orchard Angel- Somewhere over the Orchard Way up high And the dreams that you dreamed of Once in a lullaby Somewhere over the Orchard Blue birds fly And the dreams that you dreamed of Dreams really do come true Someday I'll wish upon a star Wake up where the clouds are far behind me Where trouble melts like lemon drops High above the chimney tops That's where you'll find me Oh, somewhere over the Orchard bluebirds fly And the dream that you dare to, Oh why, oh why can't I? Well I see trees of Olive and red roses too, I'll watch them bloom for me and for you And I think to myself What a wonderful Life
