    Mrs. Debbie-

  • Kristy Moody Posted June 3, 2021 9:41 AM

    Dad you were the only person in my life until I married my husband Scott Moody who ever believed in me. Even if you didn’t agree with some of my decisions in life you were always there for me and was sure to let me know that no matter what you always loved me. Without you I would have never known what unconditional love was. You were the biggest influence in my life. You and Amanda were my bestfriends. Y’all taught me so much in life. And I know you missed her dearly. Ya’ll were the good in my life. I will always love you both and miss you. But I’m glad you are finally where you wanted to be. Since amanda died you had been preparing for this. Wanted this you were tired and ready and I understand an love you for all the strength and love you showed me through out my life. I love you dad and I’m happy for you. Oh mom said you were a devout Baptist 🤣 but I know you hated religion. So I’ll clarify it for every one you hated what churches became my dad wasn’t a devout Baptist my mom was. My dad was a follower of jesus. And for those who really knew him Will know there is a huge difference in the two. Thank you dad for showing me what was really important god, relationship, understanding, unconditional love, and forgiveness. My whole life I have strived to be like you. You weren’t perfect and never pretended to be. You were gracious, loving, and freely giving.

    • Linda Clark Posted June 4, 2021 10:35 AM

      Kristy, what a beautiful testament to your dad. You were blessed by him and he was blessed by you in his life. So very sorry for your loss.

      • Kristy Moody Posted June 7, 2021 3:06 PM

        Thank you so much🤗

  • Denise Chism Posted June 3, 2021 12:29 PM

    You’ve been through so much over the past few years. I’m sorry that you are now going through this loss. I know that just like with Amanda, your faith will carry you. You have my number, please call me when you feel you need to. I love you and I am praying for you.

  • Trena Jones Posted June 4, 2021 5:20 PM

    So sorry Debbie! Your family are in my thoughts and prayers!

  • Jamie Deaton Posted November 6, 2021 6:06 AM

    Well…here goes.I wasn’t sure if I could handle clicking on this site, but here I am.i miss you more than anyone can understand.Sometimes for a fleeting second I’ll reach for my phone in the middle of the night to see what you are doing on messenger, then reality sits in.I talked to you nearly every day.the world seems just a little bit darker and colder without you in it.You accepted and understood me when most in the family didn’t.Most importantly you loved me a raised me even though I wasn’t biologically yours.That didn’t matter to you in the least.I know that you are with God and Amanda.Im looking forward to see you someday.I love you Dad!!!in my eyes you walked on water.ill go for now because I know you don’t care about fancy words or long-winded speeches.You didn’t have to talk about being a good man.You lived it.

  • Jamie Deaton Posted November 6, 2021 3:06 PM

    I cried when you passed away, I still cry today.Although I loved you dearly, I couldn’t make you stay.A golden heart stopped beating, hardworking hands at rest.God broke my heart to prove to me, that he only takes the best….I love you
