Deb, To those who knew us, we were the oddest of friends! Definite opposites :-) We had some fun times and made some great memories. The earth has lost a special person. God has gained a true angel. You and I will meet again, When we're least expecting it, One day in some far off place, I will recognize your face, I won't say goodbye my friend, For you and I will meet again. My thoughts and prayers to your family, Barbie

Reason Season Lifetime People always come into your life for a reason, a season, or a lifetime. When you figure out which it is, you know exactly what to do. When someone is in your life for a REASON, It is usually to meet a need you have expressed outwardly or inwardly. They have come to assist you through a difficulty, Or to provide you with guidance and support, To aid you physically, emotionally, or even spiritually. They may seem like a godsend to you, and they are. They are there for the reason you need them to be. Then, without any wrong doing on your part or at an inconvenient time, This person will say or do something to bring the relationship to an end. Sometimes they die. Sometimes they just walk away. Sometimes they act up and force you to take a stand. What we must realize is that our need has been met, our desire fulfilled; their work is done. The prayer you sent up has been answered and it is now time to move on. When people come into your life for a SEASON, It is because your turn has come to share, grow, or learn. They may bring you an experience of peace or make you laugh. They may teach you something you have never done. They usually give you an unbelievable amount of joy. Believe it! It is real! But, only for a season. And like Spring turns to Summer and Summer to Fall, The season eventually ends. LIFETIME relationships teach you lifetime lessons; Those things you must build upon in order to have a solid emotional foundation. Your job is to accept the lesson, love the person anyway; And put what you have learned to use in all other relationships and areas in your life. It is said that love is blind but friendship is clairvoyant. Thank you for being part of my life, Whether you were a reason, a season or a lifetime, you will forever be in my heart and be our "Angel"! I WILL MISS YOU... Love Deborah & Fred

We may be without her physical presence but Deb's spirit will live in the hearts, minds, and souls of all of us whose lives she touched. Mrs. Jehlen, thank you for the gift of Debbie to us. I can only imagine the sense of loss you're going through. I pray that you find some comfort in knowing that she is love and cherished by so many. My prayers are with you and Kathy and the rest of the family.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Debbie always had kind and encouraging words to say. She knew how to lift you up. I still have a Christian bookmark she gave me years ago that I keep in my Bible. I had lost touch with her when she quit working at Myakka River Elementary, but I never forgot her! I look forward to the day that I see her again in Heaven. I know the Lord must have needed her up there with Him, and it is His gain, and our loss. God bless your family, and please know how loved Debbie was!
