Debra was a loving mother, wife, daughter, sister, pastor, patient, and friend who will be forever missed. She lives on in the memories she made here on earth and the lessons she taught her family, her friends, and her flock. We will cherish her memory and hold her spirit in our hearts until we are reunited with her in the heavenly kingdom. Until then, we know she is held in God’s arms where she has been welcomed with the loving words, well done, my good and faithful servant; Come home - I’ve been with you and am with you always.
