  2. She will be missed dearly but I find comfort knowing she’s riding horses alongside Kenny in heaven. Love you all, wish I could be there. Sending my love from Florida.

  3. Kemp and I will truly miss seeing Debbie at horse shows. She was a true friend and a sweet lady.

  4. I am missing Debbie already. I loved her wit, her smile, her fondness of animals, her horsemanship… she could ride like no other and cook!! I know she is not hurting. She is probably smiling and dancing as she begins her new life with Kenny , family and friends.
