Debbie’s sister Jody wrote this poem:
Deborah Dee, with her heart full of gold;
Was not to live beyond one year old.
Mom and Dad showered her with love;
Along with our Heavenly Father above.
With a brother and three sisters, being a part of her family;
Deborah ran and played with everyone happily.
Now in heaven and wrapped in God’s love;
She is running and playing with the family above.

As was her wishes her body has been cremated.
A private memorial service will be held at a later date.
