  1. January 6, 2009 Dear Debbie aka Doodles, Where do I begin? Back in 1971 when we first met, we clicked right away and I knew from then on that we would maintain a long-lasting relationship. You are the sunshine in my life and you have brought me such happiness and joy with your smile, wisdom and love. You have the most kind, gentle and giving heart which I am sure you inherited from your family, the Angel€™s. Bill, Alana and Kathy, thank you from the bottom of my heart for sharing your fabulous daughter and welcoming me into your caring, unselfish and warm family. Debbie, the day you wed John was one of the happiest days of my life. You two are a perfect example of true love that spilled over to everyone around you. Michael and I could not have dreamed of having such wonderful role models to guide us through our marriage and parenthood. Jenna Mae has become a woman with strong morals and values that you and John can be incredibly proud of. Jenna is so talented, smart, loving and giving; those remarkable traits will be instilled in her children along with many memories. Jenna will carry on the legacy to follow Gods plan of what a true Christian should be, shining the light for others. My family, the Wardrops, loved and admired you so very much. My Fayette family, Michael, Kadie and Karie adored your contagious up-beat demeanor that was pure unconditional love. You have touched ALL of our hearts and truly enriched our lives more than you will ever know. Doodles, you leave me with the most enjoyable memories of my life. Our true friendship as BFF€™S will live in my heart until we meet each other again for more adventures. Thank you for ALL my life lessons that I learned through you. I thank God for one of the largest blessings in life, Deborah Ann AKA Doodles I Love you so very much and miss you like €œcrazy€. Your BFF, Dana PS. Please make sure that you and John are waiting for Michael and I to show us around for many more smiles, laughter and fun adventures!!

  2. To Jenna: Mike, Kristyn and I are so very sorry to hear about your mom’s passing. Debbie was such a dear person–always giving so much of herself to everything she did. I remember during West High softball how she was so dedicated, giving countless hours to make sure everything was taken care of behind the scenes. She amazed me with how hard she worked, never once complaining. She absolutely loved taking care of the softball girls. I will always remember her kind heart and, of course, her congagious, beautiful smile. With love, Debbie Daniels

  3. Dear Jenna, I send my deepest heartfelt sympathies to you. I fondly remember when we moved in across the street in Dec. of 1991 and your parents, and a very young you, came to our door with a beautiful planter of flowers to welcome us to the neighborhood. But it was that joyous smile and laugh of your mom’s and the friendly, smart conversation from your dad that touched me that day, and would continue to do so through the years, that will always remain with me. They weren’t new to me, however, as I knew your parents in high school. How happy I was to know I lived on the same street as your sweet and wonderful parents. Your mom, with her bright and cheerful personality was pure delight. I so enjoyed our passing waves, smiles and conversations outside our homes. She would truly light up my day. I will sincerely miss her. Love, Georgia Simmons
