In Memory of a Childhood Friend ~

My childhood friend Debi took her last breath on this earth yesterday,
her next breath in the presence of Jesus.
Below is Debi in yellow, with her husband, her children and her 
beautiful grandchildren.

Debi had some very tough times in life, and if you would have spent any amount of time
with her you would never have known.
She never complained, she was never a victim of her circumstance.
She lived life to the fullest, always with a smile.
Her family was everything to her, they were her greatest joy.

There are many heavy hearts today because we never want to say good bye to those we love.
We never feel as though we had enough time.....
Debi on the other hand is worry free, pain free, and will never want for a thing.
We will meet again, perhaps she'll live across the street from me in heaven as when we were
kids, brings a smile to ones face...

Childhood friendships, echo from my heart today....


  1. So sorry to hear of this loss. How heavy your heart must be. And yet, we she is in the arms of Jesus. Praying for comfort for all involved.

  2. I'm very sorry for you, and all the family and friends, Debi. Losing anyone is very difficult, and certainly for our childhood friends.

    Praying for peace.

  3. We grieve for our loss, we will miss them, their voice, their laughter. To know with certainty that she is now in the presence of Jesus and all the kindred souls, fills us with peace and we know, we WILL see each other again. is still difficult--for us.

  4. Debi
    I'm so sorry to hear of your friends passing for her family and friends sake.
    You are right though, she is pain free and happy now with our Lord.
    It still hurts though.
    Good Bless-Kiimberly
