    Mama D- We cannot express how broken our hearts are to know you are gone. We are still having trouble accepting that you are gone and that the last time we saw you was the very last time. Your enthusiastic spirit for professional wrestling will always remain at our shows.

    Deb, not enough space or words to say just what you mean to me and how much I miss you. It’s still so shocking that you are gone. Talking to you each night, talking to you while you were in the hospital as well as therapy, our plans for when you would get home I will treasure.. You stood by this family and saw me personally through our little Mikey and his going to Heaven. Although we met many many years ago in the Trench for the Nashville Knights who knew we would connect so many years later by Mikey’s Journey with DIPG. Our lives took a turn on that first post you wrote to me and we were immediately connected the last several years. The support you gave to Terry, Creci, Mikey, Drew, Justin and Bree.. all the family myself included showed your wonderful heart, kindness and compassion for others, even strangers who needed prayers each day and there you were to offer them up and anything else we needed. I am so glad you were there to celebrate with us at Creci’s baby shower for our Layla. I am so blessed God brought into our lives, into my life one of the best women I’ve ever known. I think of how many times you said to me, you could not wait to meet Mikey in person in heaven one day and now that day honestly came way to soon and unexpectedly. I know he was waiting there for you and that meeting happened and you will look after him in Heaven as you did your own Grandkids here on Earth. I miss you so much, tears still flowing, I keep waiting for you to call and tell me your home….I love you with all my heart. You were and always will be family to me. Prayers continue for all of your family…There will always be a candle lit in our home in your honor. Love, Nana Trish
