As we celebrate the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ in the upcoming days, I think we should also celebrate the life of our dear frIend, Debra. She blessed each and every person she came in contact with always with a smile. Her kind and gentle way with folks was Debbie's greatest asset and all the time I've known her She was such a sweet and loving soul!! I have to say that I do miss our Friday night Dinners with her and my mama. And even though Debbie was a whole lot younger than my mama, it didn't matter to either one of them. And they became such good friends. I know that Debbie is in Heaven now and I'm sure she has found my mama And they are both God's Angels.

I think of you today, Debbie, and I want to wish you a Happy Birthday, my friend. I'm so thankful for the times we shared and all of the memories we made during the span of time I was blessed to know you. I DO BELIEVE you aren't suffering anymore. And I will always keep you in my heart and, Deb, I'll always love you!!!
Love,
