    Debbie was the most giving person I ever met. She would take the shirt off of her back if she thought you needed it. No problem. Just the sweetest, the best. When I think of Debbie, I think of smiles-you uns- and love, most of all, love.

    I first got to know Debbie when she was a student in my classes at ETSU more than 30 years ago. She was top student and one of my all-time favorites. I was proud of her and proud of what she accomplished. She was unique and special. I am thankful that I got to spend 30 minutes or so talking to Debbie and Cody just last month. My sincerest condolences to the family and friends. She is in heaven enjoying her reward. May God give you all the peace and comfort that only He can give.

    Debbie was a lovely lady. She was one of the smartest people I have had the privilege of working with. She was always there to offer a helping hand or word of encouragement. She was devoted to her family and took joy in all they accomplished. Her faith was deep and unwavering. My deepest sympathy is extended to you and pray you will find comfort in knowing she is at peace.
