Debbie’s Memorial Service

August 1, 2007 at 12:34 pm

Yesterday I had a very difficult time in saying goodbye to Debbie, my daughter Mary Ann had a very hard time at Debbie’s service. My grand daughter Brittany broke down at the service & cryed so much, they had to take her to the nursery.

As for me I chose 3 songs that were Debbie’s Favorites, they were Lean On Me, by Bill Withers, I Can Only Imagine, by Mercy Me, & I Hope You Dance, by Lee Ann Womack. The last one was the one that really upset me, Debbie loved all those songs but I think the last one her favorite. I just broke down & cried, then when the time came to say my final goodbye to her. I just about totally broke down, I finally managed to give her a final goodbye kiss & tell her I loved her.

I did manage to drive to the cemetery following the hearse & was someway able to make it through the graveside service. Debbie’s final resting place is in a church cemetery about 3 miles from where I live, so I can go there as often as I want. I guess I was missing her so I drove back to the cemetery, late yesterday everything looked ok so I feeling somewhat better. I know she’s finally at peace & she doesn’t have to suffer anymore pain.

Everyone just cherish the time you have on this earth, with your mate. Because it can be taken away in the blink of an eye. Thank You Everyone for your thoughts & words of encouragement, I truly appreciate it.
