Debby Sparks Death, Obituary – I just found out that one of my most treasured friends, Debby Sparks, has died away. She was an amazing person. This is really striking a chord with me on a very fundamental level. Debby was a gorgeous girl inside and out, and she had a charisma that lit up the room. It was she who got me a job at South Intermediate, and the interview we had together was the most challenging one I’ve ever gone through in my whole life. She was the one who recruited me to work there. During the whole time that she was here, she did an amazing job of keeping me on my toes and putting me in a defensive position.
In addition to this, before the interview was through, she told me, “We still have a few more persons to interview, but unless one of them blows our minds, you’ve earned the job!” First things first, I sent in my application for the job, and the rest, as they say, is history. Even after she relocated further south, we maintained our previous level of communication with one another. Even when we were purchasing our third piece of real estate, which occurred many years ago, she continued to act as our real estate agent. Debby, I sincerely pray that you are aware of the priceless value that you had for me throughout our time together.
You made me feel loved, valued, and like an important person in the world. I really appreciate that. I “got” you and you “got” me! You put up a brave fight against ALS, and despite its progression, you were able to keep your sass right up to the end. Never in a million years would I have imagined that you would do anything less than what you really did. Oh my goodness, when I am no longer able to read your clever and frequently biting posts, I am going to be in such a miserable position. You were one in a million, and once you pass away, there is no question that God will have a lovely angel to watch over him. On Thursday, I will be commemorating your life, and if the Lord wills it, I will hopefully see you again in the not-too-distant future. In the meanwhile, I am looking forward to remembering your life.
