Sending condolences to Debbie and family. I use to come into the chiropractors office and you both were so kind to me. This saddens me deeply. Warmest regards, Connie Fletcher

Debbie, You are in our thoughts and prayers. Janet was such a fun person to be around. Within minutes of being in her presence you were laughing and having fun too. She was so thoughtful and kind putting others needs before her own. She loved God, her family and friends, her church, and her community. She has taken her final "Christian Tour" trip, the best one ever! Love, Beth Stillwell Reeves
