Debbie,I M so sorry to hear about George. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. Love and hugs my friend.
You are my hero, and my rock. I always felt so safe and secure with you, whether I was 6 or 60 years old.
I’m going to do my best to remember all the important lessons you taught me. I’m going to try and be brave and strong so you’ll be proud of me, and try to make sure everyone is taken care of, just like you always did.
I know your hearing is all better now in heaven, so listen for me. I’m gonna be talking to you a lot.
With all my love forever 💙
