    To Ms Bernice, Bobby, Danny Paul, Danita and Presley; I’m so sorry to hear that Debbie passed away. I won’t be able to make it to the funeral today but my heart is with you. Debbie was always so sweet to me, including Duke and all of you. I know her suffering has ended but I know the grief y’all share is insurmountable.

    Many years of Christmas memories come to mind when I think about Aunt Debbie. She always hosted the perfect parties. My thoughts and prayers are with the Duffy/Tidwell families during this difficult time.

    Dear Ms. Bernice, Danita and Danny Paul,
    We are so sorry to hear of the demise of your daughter and mother. We have such fond thoughts of the kindness of Debra and how she was such a great host whenever we visited our kinsmen and kinswomen in Louisiana. She truly touched our hearts and Duke was so fortunate to have such a great life partner. Debbie had so much love in her heart for so many, especially Presley. She will be forever in our hearts.

    Ordo ab Chaos,
    Bug, Debbie, Nicholas and Scottie Lard
