Aunt Debbie I never thanked for everything you did for me. There was a time in my life when I needed someone and you were there to pick me up and make me laugh, and made me stand on my own two feet. You had such a huge heart, would've done anything for anyone. I'm so sorry your heart was so full of hurt. I will miss seeing you and the first thing you would say to me is what a beautiful young lady I grew to be and then you'd say "Gimme' a hug" and at 5'3, I'd have to lean way over to hug you, lol. I remember when you lived in Chicago and you'd come visit for a few hours, I would cry and want you to come back. You will always be "Aunt" Debbie to me, not Debbie and I will always have a special place in my heart for you. I love you Aunt Debbie, be free now. Love, Misty

My heart goes out to our family, Debbie's parents, children and grandchildren. Some of my fondest memories of Debbie were as a child, when I spent ALOT of time with her. She always smiled and helped me, protected me and just loved me. Debbie and Pam were like big sisters to me, all of my life. There was and is a special bond that will never be broken or forgotten. No matter how hard things were for her, she tried to hide it through her smile. I love her and will forever keep my fond memories of her in my heart. She has found her peace. Much love and respect to the family.

Dear Ran family,

I would like to offer my condolences to your family on the passing away of your loved one. The grief and the pain that are felt may at times become overwhelming heavy. But please rest assured that God cares for you and your family and that he will sustain you at this time. Through the Holy Scriptures we are encouraged to throw our burdens on God in prayer and then he will sustain us. In the coming days, weeks, months, and years, always remember that only our Almighty God has the power to perform miracles. And he has promised to wipe the tears from our eyes by performing the miracle of resurrecting our loved ones back to life in the
near future. Jesus Christ himself said: "Do not marvel at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out!
May God sustain you until "the resurrection on the Last day."

Humbly and respectfully submitted
