Deborahlynn's final expenses

Deborahlynn Forbes was a force to be reckoned with; she was tenacious, stubborn, passionate, generous, and incredibly kind. Deborahlynn died unexpectedly on Sunday, October 22, 2017 at the age of 54.

Deborahlynn dealt with a great deal of pain and suffering in her lifetime, but through it all, she was positive and never lost sight of her faith. We know she is in Heaven keeping tabs on us all. We know her pain is gone and that there are no neck braces, walkers, wheelchairs, or leg braces in Heaven.

Her three children are left with final expense costs, and her youngest daughter Taylor, who is 19 years old, is a college sophomore at Messiah. She needs to focus on school. Her son James and Leslie (husband Peter), in addition to Taylor, are taking the burden of final expenses completely on their own. Past that, they are taking on the costs of a teenager (cell phone, insurance, college needs, etc). They are also taking care of some outstanding debts, as well as paying for multiple storage units until everything can be moved into Leslie's garage for storage.

It would be really great if we could give them a hand. So many people have reached out asking how they could help; this is the answer to that question.
