    What can I say about someone who was my friend since before we started school? Deb was the best friend anyone could have. Loyal, funny, loving, just the best person I have ever known. Deb, my heart is broken with your loss. I will never again pick up the phone to hear you say “Kalah you crazy nut!” while you laughed. You were my first friend outside of my family, we met before my sisters were born and you were like a sister to me. I barely remember a time you were not in the world with me. I have so many happy memories of times with you and I will always remember you with love. I am so sorry that you were so ill and had to leave us so soon. We had made plans that we will not be able to fulfill but we will meet again someday and I will look forward to hearing you laugh again!
    Jim and Angie, I am very so for your loss, she loved you both so much.

    Debbie you will be missed. We stayed friends no matter what. I enjoyed seeing you every time I came down to Evansville. My trips won’t be the same. You are in heaven now.
