    My heart and condolences go out to the family. I worked with Debbie years ago at Canady & Sons. She was a very sweet woman who will be missed dearly by many. I told my daughter Melissa, who would come to work with me occasionally about the news...and her response was, "Awe, she was always so nice to me!" Debbie gave her heart and soul to everything she done. I cant believe this news.....I'm at a loss for words. God Bless.

    Please except my condolence in the loss of your love one. May you find comfort in knowing that your dear one is safe in the memory of God, who will remember every detail about her and bring her back again. John 5:28, 29 gives this assurance.
