Good-byes are not the end.

They simply mean “I’ll miss you, until we meet again”.

  4. Deb had a friendly personality and I always enjoyed our conversations and how she thought about all the Wednesday night CIA children and surprised them each week with a special treat! As I visited with her just a few short weeks ago life was good and we had a few minutes to catch up on all our happenings! She was such an awesome loving Grandmother to Aubrey! I was in shock when I heard she had gone home to be with Jesus! May she continue to fill our hearts with joy with sweet memories! Love to the family Belva
