“It’s a shame how easy it is to forget the people that have helped us out along our journey of life! There
are those who have helped us in ways we don’t at the time realize that it was a help to us, there are
those that have, or so we thought, hindered us, when in actuality they made us feel compassion towards
those less fortunate than ourselves! Every incident in our lives is a learning process and we need to take
it all in and figure out the meaning of life events and be thankful to those that have taken the time to do
something for us whether we think it was a benefit or not! After all they could have turned their back on us and not taken the time to be there at all! No one is right all the time and we all can learn something
from everyone, it’s what we do with what we learn that is important!”
Debra is survived by her husband (Sonny); children Shane (Julie) Jennings; Christian Jennings;
stepchildren, Melanie (Michael) Hagen; Amber (Russell) Simmons; sibling Bradford R. (Mary Ruth) Fox;
twelve grandchildren; one great grandchild. She is preceded in death by her parents, Don & Jeannie Fox; sister, Opal Jean (Jeannie) Applegate and brother, James Courtland (Corky) Egner.
