Debra has been my Fitbit friend. I joined in May of 2018. Debra was in a group of 10 people in a weekly challange. She would speak up if things was not interesting enough. We knew she would brighten up the challenge with a funny face 🤪😜 and comment. Twinkle toes like Fred Flintstone bowling or Tiptoeing through the tulips as I snuck by her. 🌷👣🌷👣. We had talked about how fun it would be for all of us to meet and go for a walk together. 👣 I think of how Debra would tell me to look up because her name was above mine now. She had left me in the dust.🏎💨. 😜🤪 Debra had a good sence of humor and we all looked forward to her comments. I will miss her. She has passed me again and I can hear her say to look up ☁️☁️☁️ I'm above you now. 🌷👣🌷👣🌷 Thanks to her husband and family for supporting her with her Fitbit family. Maurice Mathews. Salt Lake City, Utah.

Dear family, husband and childrens and sweet grandchildrens and sisters of debra, I present myself heidi wendelen from Belgium/ sicily. I met debra 2 years ago ( virtual) on challenges on Fitbit . I and a lot of others became friends with her Very quickly. She was our mascotte . There was no challenges without our debra. She was remarcable lovely sweet, kind, understanding, motivating all of us. She told us stories from her visiting her sisters and What a lovely Time She had. From her daughters and her sweet grandchildrens. We admire her enthousiasme every single day. We were always happy when it was monday again and She sign in... i loved her in so many ways. Since 3 weeks She didn't sign in and we knew She had à cough and has to go to the hospital . But we didn't know it was so bad. We knew She was vacinated and we never was thinking that She could passed away. So today someone of our friends amy and annanie find out She was to heaven on july 14. My heart stood still. I am so so sorry and so sad of this news. I want to say in thé name of all her friends on Fitbit that She Will be missed enormesly and i Will never Forget this gréât lady. It was for me an honor to know her. I wish you all thé best and strenght in thé future and i promis myself that i Will go one day to thé cimitery to bring her flowers. Excuse my english but we speak french in my country or italian. I Will always remember her and never forget my sweet friend debra. With lové, Heidi wendelen Belgium ( stevoort)
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Donald, I am just crushed to hear that Debbie has succumbed to her illness. She was such a special lady, and loved by all who knew her. I know you will be lost without her and a big void has been left in the lives of your precious grandchildren. I would give anything that I were able to be more involved, but I am constrained to follow orders for health reasons at this time in my life. Please know that I am praying for you and your family, and will talk with you anything you need to talk.

My sincere sympathy to you, Donald, and to your family. I am sorry for the loss of Debra. I will always remember her teaching me in Sunday school when I has younger, and I loved to hear the jingle of her charm bracelet, it was beautiful! I love you and appreciate how you and Debra poured into our lives at Iron City Baptist Church when you were our youth pastor. I treasure those memories. May God Bless you and heal your hurt as only He can. Much love and prayers, Nancy Lett Gandee And Rick Gandee
