I am very saddened at the passing of my sweet cousin Debbie. Even though she was a cousin, she was like the sister I never had. I will never forget the memories that I hold and cherish of her and the times we spent together growing up. I wish I had of gotten to see and speak with her one more time. We should never take anyone for granted in this life, because we never know if it will be the last time we see them. Love each other every day we can, we are not guaranteed of tomorrow. Debbie, I love you very much and you will never be forgotten. Heaven must have needed a new angel and I hope to see you again one day...
