    Deanna, David & family: I am SO VERY SORRY for your loss. I know some will say “it’s a blessing” & some will say “she is now in a better place”…but that still doesn’t ease your pain. If I can do something to help you through this — I will. I’m here for you any time…day or night, even if it’s just to talk. Take care of yourselves, as I’m sure you will be very busy in the next few days / weeks. Just know that, in time, it will get better. It may not EVER completely be the same, but time will help heal the pain. Love you guys !!

    I realized just recently that Debbie had been helpful to me several times at Shurfine. She was very, very nice. I am so sorry for her passing; my thoughts and prayers are with her family and friends.
