Journal entry by Debbie Ide

My beautiful wife went to live in paradise with the Jesus Monday night (4/15) just before midnight.  We had been referring to her passing as Graduation Day, as she has completed this temporary life and graduated to her eternal home. Right now I am confident she is pain-free for the first time in a very long time, experiencing unimaginable love, and worshiping the Lord alongside her mom, dad, Andrea's mom Jamie, and so many others...

418 days from initial diagnosis to yesterday.  Unbelievable.  We've had so many emotions in that span. Probably most of them, culminating in an intimate peaceful time of immediate family with Debbie at the end.  Within those 418 days the outpouring of kindness and love from friends, family (and some we had never met!) has been vast and extremely humbling - especially to Debbie. Thank you all very much.

There will be a memorial service but we have not worked out details yet.  I will share them here soon.

Thank you again for loving on and caring about Debbie.
