My good friend, Debbie, passed away early this morning.  I was lucky enough to travel to my home state of Kentucky, to see her, just before Christmas.  It means the world to me, to have been able to visit with her, on what turned out to be her last "good" day.  

And I know this will sound odd, and is likely more than you need or want, to know, but I awoke this morning, and looked at the clock.  It was 0505.  I said to myself:  "Debbie just passed."  20 minutes later, I got the call.  And the time, was spot on.  I am a scientific man, but there are plenty of things we just cannot ever hope to explain, eh?

Godspeed, Debbie!  I love you.

Michael, I'm so sorry to hear that.
Yes, there are more things that we just don't know about.
Take care, Bryan.

Sorry for your loss Mike, You, Debbie and her family will be in our prayers. I lost my sister Paula 6 years ago today. I woke up suddenly this morning at 2:04 AM and she was the first thing on my mind. I just know at the time, she was near me.

Sorry for your loss. Last year, I lost 4 friends between the ages of 46 and 52. Tough year. But having had those folks in my life was truly a gift. Hope you continue to smile when you think of your friend Debbie. Warmest regards, Bill

Very sorry for your loss. I believe that was Debbie waking you up at 5:05 to say goodbye. :) What a connection you two must have had. Always cherish that. God Bless.

So sorry to hear your news Michael. Loss like this is always difficult to comprehend. I had the " know that a person has passed " experience with my old Mum some 15 years ago, and still can`t get my head around it. ...........Regards Peter V.
