Debbie was a kind, accomplished and warm person so her passing will be painfully and deeply felt. My sister Carol was an employee at Pardee when Debbie was working there and then was a patient for years when Debbie was with Pardee Home Health. Debbie was the best, and Carol spoke of her often until she herself passed last year. Prayers for you, your family and Debbie.
Brian – I worked with Debbie for years at Pardee but you also captured 3 gorgeous feral kittens from your barn that my sister has nurtured and loved over the years. Debbie will continue to be the most loving, compassionate, generous spirit in every life that was blessed to be graced by her presence in their lives 💖💕 She is a treasured gift and will be very missed. Prayers of comfort to you and your family 🙏
I worked with Debbie many years ago at Pardee Hospital and had talked with her several times through the years. She always had such a sweet spirit about her. Heaven gained a sweet soul. I’m so very sorry for your loss, praying for all of you.
I have known Debbie since we were very young. We went to the same babysitter. Our lives cross crossed through many years. She was always the same sweet and caring person. I am so sorry for your family’s loss. I wish there was something I could do to ease the pain for you and her Mom. Bless you all as you travel this hard road. Prayers are with you, and know that MANY cared very much for Debbie. God bless you all.
Debbie had a genuine love for her family and concern for others. She will be missed by everyone that had the pleasure of meeting her. Prayers for comfort for Brian and the family.
My sincere condolences on the loss of your Wife, Mother and Daughter. I worked with Debbie. She was one of the kindest people I have ever met. She will be missed.
Debbie was such a precious friend. Always thinking of others, recently she contacted me because she heard I had been sick, she wanted me to know I was prayed for and that she loved me. No one knows what that meant on that day. She had said she would be having surgery and I told her I’d be checking on her and praying for her also. We never know when our last conversation is going to be with ones we love. Husband and Family, I am so very sorry for your loss, you are in my prayers the coming days, weeks and months. We were blessed to have her in our lives.
