Debbie, You were always my sweet, precious friend. Every time I was with you, you exuded joy! I was so sorry to hear of your daughters passing just this morning. Please know you are in my thoughts and prayers. I’m asking our Heavenly Father to hold you close and carry you through. Lean on Him Deb!

Even though I have only known you for 3 years it seems I've known you my whole life. You are the strongest most brave person that I have had to pleasure to have come into my life. You are my hero Ali. I love you and will miss you more than you will ever know. I dont know what Crystal and me are going to do not having our third musketeer. Till I see you again in Heaven.
