    Don, Tracy and Joel,
    Debbie, has been and will always be an influence for positivity and love. A strong tower in times of trouble and a comforting blanket of love in times of pain. We all wish to have her back with us. Is it possible? Can it be? Notice Job’s comment to God at Job 14:14, 15, “14 If a man dies, can he live again? I will wait all the days of my compulsory service, Until my relief comes. 15 You will call, and I will answer you.You will long for the work of your hands. While Aunt Debbie rests, be strong my dear family and put faith in the words of Revelation 21:3-5.
