Debbie quietly helped to care for others who she found in need. She never boasted or expected anything in return; she was a quiet servant in God's kingdom. Debbie did not need expensive gifts, quality time with family and friends brought her happiness. She simply enjoyed the simple things in life. She lived a life of love and shared it with all she met. She will be deeply missed and loved by all the lives she touched.
