    I read with sadness of the loss of Debbie. My heart goes out to you over the loss of such a beautiful person. She will be greatly missed. May God grant you comfort and peace during this difficult time. Galatians 1:3. Please remember that you can lean on your Heavenly Father for support. He is a comforter of all those who mourn. In His Word the Bible, He tells us to throw all our anxiety upon Him, because He cares for us, 1Peter 5:7. Isaiah 41:10. He also tells us of a brighter future when our loved ones will awake from their restful sleep to enjoy life in paradise. John 11:11; John 6:40; Revelation 21:3, 4. Many are finding solace in this promise. I pray that you will also.

    Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal. May the blessings of love be upon you, May your cherished memories abide with you, now and forever. Heartfelt prayers are with you.

    Please accept my condolences. Debbie and I were good friends in High school and have not spoken since she left Andalusia. Can you tell me what happened? I am so sorry for your loss and am so sad that we haven’t spoken in so long. Patsy Taylor
