    I am still stunned and saddened to be able to gather my thoughts enough to do justice to the memories of how much Deanna meant to me over the past 21 years. Deanna took loving care of our disabled daughter years ago in Upstate New York and she continued to stayed in touch with us even after we moved to Ohio then California. Deanna put her love for Christ into loving action for others. I struggle to write now because I miss my sister in Christ so much right now. I want to say thank you to Rick and the family for letting Deanna and me talk so often and so long on the phone together! May the Lord bless and keep you all in His blessed grace, and comfort you with His love. To all Deanna’s family and friends I say find peace in truth of the gospel she loved so well, and may God be your strength through this difficult time. Very sincerely in Christ,
    Sharon and Jim Ibrahim

    Deanna and I spent a little time together when we were both doing chemo. I was sad to see she lost her battle but am comforted that she was confident in her trust in God’s plan. I’d like to extend my sympathy to her family. I’m sure it is so hard to lose such an amazing woman.
