Dear ones,

I was saddened to learn of Debbie’s passing, because Jackie is a close

friend and I know how difficult the loss of Debbie’s physical presence is

for all of you who love her. At the same time, I am rejoicing that she has

gone beyond suffering to a spiritual presence that will be closer to you

than she has ever been before.

To trust in spiritual presence with the heart of a child is what love is all

about. In love, we are present both physically and spiritually. When

physical presence is lost, the eternal spirit remains in a bond that unites

us forever. Our hearts know what our minds do not, and Debbie will come to

you in an endless number of surprising ways, the gift of love.

May God keep you forever.

I met Debbie during her employment at EVMS. She was such a wonderful, positive and open person. I will truly miss being able to share moments of life with her.
