Jonathan, Our prayers of peace are being sent to you.  We are currently away and unable to attend Debbie's service.  She was a wonderful person and I have many fond memories of working with Debbie.  She was a strong warrior for sure.  She is now playing and singing with God's angels.

Dear "Debbie's" Family,      I just want to send my sincere sympathy to all of you.  I am both shocked and saddened by her passing.  We last spoke at Cleista's funeral. Each time we would "talk" I could tell how much she loved her family. All of you were "her everything".  I am so sorry for your loss.                           Sincerely,                            Anita  (John and Gilpha's daughter)
