  • Celebration of Life

    To many you were a sister, a daughter, a niece, a friend, a neighbor, an artist, a devoted buckeye fan. For me, you were a friend who fought the bravest fight as a child to later fight another as a result of after effects of this fight. The odds of both fights always as disadvantage but you put a smile on found great enjoyment going to the doctors visits. On July 12, Debbie, God called you home and you went willing to meet your grandparents waiting for you. Your time here was short but very meaningful.
    Nothing in life says you how many candles each of gets. Some get more some get less but it what you make the most what is given and be happy with what we get. I would like to thank you for sharing your time with me.
    I can still here you tell me your going to beat me playing your favorite game “Sorry” or watching the crime science television shows on television. Your favorite radio station you listen to or the Buckeyes every Saturday when we watch on t.v. when they were playing . How about those word search puzzle books one last time. Nothing like a hallmark classic we watch.
    To the trips to Arbys for Roast Beef sandwich with curly fries or the Pepsi you loved to drink. Last trip to Cinemark to view Christopher Robin and with you trying to play Tiger with a bounce in the Gold chair. Off to pick out a pumpkin from the pumpkin patch we go for you to draw your what you wanted on the pumpkin.
    Well Sunshine it is time to go now until I see you again. Angels have come to take you home.
