A very dear and special friend is having her moms funeral at 1p.m. I am going to go if for no other reason, than moral support and just let her know that when I say, 'low times,' this day will be her ultimate low time in her life. All I can do is be there to remind her that the outside world, that in this time of her 'grief process,' she let's it go. She walks away. When the sun sets in her life, and she waits in the dark and wonders, if it ever will come back, I can not predict the future, but I can guarantee one thing; when the sun sets low in her life, and darkness is all that she can imagine, I will be in front of that sunset to remind her that when her grieving is something she can learn to accept, and live with, although at times, will be pure hell, when the sun rises, it will be me that stood all night with the sun to my back. Simply to remind her, that when it grows dark and her vision fades of what is there, My shadow will appear to let her know it is me, I will stand in her darkness, God knows that she has stood in mine a lot of times. I will be there for her as best I can. RIP Deborah...

Deborah, was more then just a childhood friend, we both were sisters in every way. She and i never failed to talk and video chat most every day, Until she took sick I'm so sorry I couldn't be there at the end of your life. My last trip to Va. i will keep our memories dear to my heart. And the year you came up to NH went camping and to the Pow wow with Chris and I. Was one of the many times we shared we laughed we've cried we got in trouble growing up. and we done many hours of dish washing when our families got together. Two big family we both came from. When I needed a friend to listen you was there when i needed Big sister advise you surely gave it to me straight even if i didn't want to hear it. I will miss our late night talks and jokes we shared while sipping Pepsi miles away. you and i could finish a sentence we always new what the other was going to say. and then spent hours laughing. May your new path you travel watch over all you left behind. I'm so very sorry Tabatha, Doug, Nick i cant be there on Sat just know i will be with you all in spirit .. and for all the Heath family Light love and prayers for you all

My husband and I first met Deb when she came to work for us at Liberty Tax; and over the 14 years since, she became a dear friend. I appreciated her loyalty, devotion, and perseverance. Because she was trustworthy, I had her manage the marketers who went door to door. She also did a fabulous job calling previous year’s clients. Some might remember her as the waver in costume who mouthed “Good Morning” to all who drove by her and the enthusiastic Lady Liberty in the Hampton Christmas parade. She cheerfully did everything I gave her to do, and even found other jobs to do (such as cleaning the office)! Deb was meticulous and a VERY hard worker. She was a huge help with other jobs outside of the tax office, too. Deb and I enjoyed our visits and outings over the years. I marveled at her optimism, intelligence, and the way she handled difficult situations. We liked to debate important issues. When we didn’t agree, there were no hard feelings. We loved and appreciated each other. It was heartbreaking to watch her deteriorate in the hospital. She will be sorely missed. I treasure the positive impact she had in my life.

Tab, My heart goes out to you at this difficult time. I will always cherish the fond memories I have of you and your mom. As the days pass, I hope you find peace and comfort in those memories also. When someone you love becomes a memory, the memory becomes a treasure. Much love.
