    What a girl.. Debbie was. I will always remember our school days while attending West Plains Sr High. Debbie had a smile for everyone and always had time to visit with you even if it was just to say hi and small talk. Kelly I am so sorry for your loss and praying that God will give you and your family peace and comfort in this time of sorrow.

    From elementary days at Glenwood School through our recent phone visit, it has always been such a pleasure and honor to know Debbie. She was always ready to help others and to have a good time (recalling the hay ride for Amy and James eighth grade class and the many slumberless parties for Rory and Stephen and friends) She exemplified “Love your neighbor” and love is eternal.

    Kelly, Ames and Rory, and Sandy and Pam,
    I have Debbie’s beautiful face and warm smile pictured in my mind. That will be how I always remember her. I understand the sadness and shock of the sudden passing of someone you love. I know that there are not words that can express how you feel. Please know that Debbie and the memories I have of her will be cherished. Although I can’t be there for the services, please know that my arms are wrapped around each one of you in a hug. Love to all of you, Julie Brown.
