I am so sorry and I will keep you in my thoughts.
Debbie was and still is the best mother-in-law anyone could ever have. She listened and gave advise when needed. She was always there for me, especially after my Mother passed away. She will be truly missed but she will still always be by my side helping me. I will miss her greatly but I know she is now in peace at home.
Debbie was a good friend. She was friendly and kind to everyone. I never heard her complain, but was always ready to add something positive to the conversation. I will miss her.
I had the pleasure of meeting Debbie through the Lawrence Welcome Club. Canasta Club was where we met. She would even ride with me to Topeka one Sunday a month to play cards there. I miss my carpool partner and friend. God’s blessings to the family.
Debbie and her late husband Calvin were members of our Jayhawk Ramblers RV group. We enjoyed many years camping with them – very fun people. I enjoyed playing games with Debbie. We will miss her.
