ANDERSON, DEBRA MARIE 9/18/1958 - 11/23/2001 Missed and mourned by her family and friends during more than twenty years of drug addiction, Debbie's life on earth has ended. She was a loving, beautiful child, intelligent, full of grace and promise. She loved life, horses and roses. We loved her. When she was a teenager, she began using what she and her friends thought of as "recreational" drugs. Debbie became addicted quickly and from that time on, her life was one of pain and suffering. She tried many, many times to quit. She never could. She died from an overdose, leaving grieving family and friends. If her story can stop even one teenager from using drugs, we would be comforted. The Lord holds Debbie now and she will finally have the joy and beauty she so much wanted and so much deserved. God bless you, daughter, mother, sister, niece, cousin, friend. No one can ever take your place in our hearts. Debbie's family will welcome her friends at a memorial service to be held on Sunday, Dec. 2 at 3:00 pm. Please call 428-3983 for the address. Please send remembrances to the Salvation Army in Debbie's name
