  1. In memory of Debra J. (nee Tyler) Gelch

    Written by: Carole Lerman Proffitt

    To the entire family, you are in my thoughts and prayers. May Debbie’s memory always be for a blessing❣️

    I am unable to attend the service, but I will be there with you all in spirit.

    I’d like to leave you with something that was shared with me upon the passing of my mother-in-law. It brought me great comfort to think of her in the way the poem written by
    Ellen Brenneman explains… I have switched the pronouns/gender (from the original poem) to reflect the beautiful wife, daughter, sister, mother, friend and woman, who has left us grieving. May she rest in Peace!

    For Debra:

    Her Journey’s Just Begun –
    Don’t think of her as gone away
    her journey’s just begun,
    life holds so many facets
    this earth is only one.

    Just think of her as resting
    from the sorrows and the tears
    in a place of warmth and comfort
    where there are no days and years.

    Think how she must be wishing
    that we could know today
    how nothing but our sadness
    can really pass away.

    And think of her as living
    in the hearts of those she touched…
    for nothing loved is ever lost
    and she he was loved so much.
