Condolence From: DW
Condolence: So sorry for your loss. May you find comfort in the words spoken at Revelation 21:3,4 With that I heard a loud voice from the throne say: “Look! The tent of God is with mankind, and he will reside with them, and they will be his people. And God himself will be with them. And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away".

Condolence: If you knew her, you will understand the following...You may have cursed her out, but she never cursed anyone for any reason. She may not have been liked by many people, because she never backed down for anything, but she was loved by many because she cared for all. “Thus says the LORD who made it, the LORD who formed it to establish it, the LORD is His name: ‘Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.’” (Jeremiah 33) The Architect who made you has you complete and perfect in His Glory...The Lord has blessed you Deb!

Condolence: I miss her already. She and I were voices on the phone. I never met her in person but felt like she was my friend and I hers. She called on our office almost every week and I either spoke to her or faxed her a message.God must have needed another Angel to take Deb home so quickly. May God bless her family and comfort them during this time. Miss you Deb. Enjoy those streets of gold and all of heaven. Amen.

Condolence: We at Crossroads Hospice who knew Debbie were so shocked to learn of her passing. She called almost weekly on business matters, and I was always greeted by her sweet "Hello". You could hear her smiling through the phone. I know she will be greatly missed.

Condolence: I talked on the phone and met with Deb, when I accompanied my friend's daughter after my friend's death, just 3 weeks ago. I was immediately struck by her gentleness and kindness toward her. She was so helpful and understanding, as she went through the process . I want to extend my sincere sympathy to her family and the comfort in knowing she now rests with Jesus ..Sincerest thoughts and prayers. Kathy Hartelust
