Debbie fought hard to stay with us all but the chemo broke her body down!  I miss her terribly as I know her family and friends do.  I was blessed to spend a good amount of time with her before she left us.  She loved her family dearly, especially her son and grandsons!  We talked about her seeing loved ones that had gone before us and she told me I would see a cardinal when she got to everyone and last night I looked out my kitchen wiindow and there was a cardinal sitting on my fence looking back at me! Rest easy Deb, I am glad you are now pain free.  I will never forget you!
