Debbie and I were friends in grade school, and jr high. I moved to Fla, and lost touch. I was shock to hear of your loss. Your family will be in my prayers.

I did not know Debbie, but I know Debbie's brother Daniel Bigham. I am the pastor of the Circleville Church of the Brethren, where Dan attends church on a regular basis. Dan had mentioned Debbie for prayer, and she has been on our prayer list for a long time. Our prayers now go out to the family during this difficult time. May Jesus comfort your hearts during this time of great loss. And may the good Lord strengthen our faith as we accept that the Lord has called home Debbie Diaz. God Bless, Pastor Daniel Fullen
