Deborah Woods 1950-2013

I am saddened by the death of one of my younger sisters, Deborah, this weekend.  She made her transition on Sunday morning at 6a.m.  She died of Cancer.  We were so happy that she gave herself to the Lord before she died.

Thank you Lord for giving me the opportunity to let her know how much I loved her.

This disease took her so fast.  She was diagnosed in April of this year and died within 3 months.  Deborah was Ms. Personality.  She was the one with the vibrant bubbling personality that led to her having many long-time friends.  She was loved by many people and will surely be missed.   Our family (mother and 3 sisters) will never be the same.  There is an irreplaceable hole that is causing us a lot of grief.  But along with the grief is happiness knowing that she is presently with our Lord and Savior.
  It's going to take a while for us to get over the pain of loosing our sister.  We are counting on the mercy of the Lord and the strength he will provide, to help us get through this trying experience.

                                     I love you Deborah.  We will see you again one day!
Below is a video made by her nephew, Kael Beverly.  It is awesome.  It captures Deborah's personality and what she was all about.  Also included is a Gospel message that gives all an invitation to ask for Jesus, our Lord and Savior, to come into our life.


  1. I am so sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family in this dark time.

  2. Oh Edie, So sorry to hear about the passing of your sister. My thought and prayers are with you.

  3. I know how it is to lose a love one/s for both my father and my mother dies within a month from each other and without their knowledge, cancer took them both. It was really fast, like you said. Give yourself time to grieve. Like you, I am so glad to hear that she came to know Jesus before her time for truly, that is the "Only Thing" in this life that will matter to the next. I pray for comfort and peace as Jesus gives for you and your family. Hugs!
