  1. I'm so sorry love.

    My heart goes out to her family, her husband and her children.

    But also to you.

    It is so hard to lose somebody you care about, empathizing to the point of pain with her fear and agony at leaving her children and what her death will mean for them.

    Big fat hug, I wouldn't wish what you are feeling, have been feeling, will feel, on my worst enemy.

  2. I watched this and thought it was beautiful. She looked like a lovely lady, and the song is perfect.

  3. Debbie was without doubt, one of the most humble, sunny, lovely people I have ever known.

  4. This is so sad. But at the same time, it's an absolutely beautiful tribute to a woman whom you can tell was adored. And it's easy to see she was a nice person. It shines through.
    I love that song too.
    I'm sorry for your loss and sorry that she had to go so soon.
    thanks for sharing.
    Hugs to you.
