    Maxine Arnold McElveen, and Family & Friends,
    I was so sorry to hear the sad news. I have lost a great and dear friend. My sympathy to you and your family. We were great friends in high school. We lost each other sometime after graduation, and I didn’t know she didn’t know where to find me. But God brought us back together. Thank God he got us back together before she went to be with the Lord. He is taking great care of her now. One more time Debbi, I love you, and I will have you in my heart forever.
