Deb and family, You are in our thoughts and prayers at this time. I have such wonderful memories of your mom from just hanging out with Deb or the slumber parties she let Deb have, one very memorable scavenger hunt comes to mind. Your mom was one of a kind and I feel blessed that I got to know her not only as a child, but as an adult. She will be missed by many.
All of our love,
Debbie, so sorry about your mom. My prayers are with you and your family, during this time.
Debbie, Randy and Richard,
We’re so sorry for your sorrow and loss. We know your mother is smiling somewhere, as she watches over all of you.
Peace and prayers,
Your family and friends at Flowers Baking Company of Denton
My deepest sympathy to the family. I had the pleasure of meeting this sweet lady several times and always enjoyed her company. May she Rest In Peace and love forever!
Sorry for your loss. May she look over you and your family from heaven.
Sweet lady! You will be missed by all who you touched in life.
Debbie, Randy, Ricky and family. I am so sorry for your loss. I loved your mother like an aunt. She was smart, cute, and funny. I loved getting to see her when she would visit. She and my Mom always loved teasing each other and talked about how much fun they had as telephone operators in Sherman. I always looked up to her for how strong and independent she was. If Ford and her had not introduced my parents on a blind date, my sister and I would not be here right now!
