IN LOVING MEMORY OF DEBRA BOND (November 3, 1959 - November 18, 2014)

Debra Bond was one of the sweetest, most compassionate people I have ever known, and it is hard to believe that she passed over a year ago on November 18, 2014.

For the past several years, Debra fought bravely against heart disease, but passed away last year at Oakview Heights Continuous Care and Rehabilitation Center in Mt Carmel, IL, surrounded by her immediate family. Heart Disease is a horrific illness that claims more wonderful women than any other, even cancer, and the family has been devastated ever since.  

Her final resting place is at the Bone Gap, IL cemetery, next to her late sister and parents. She left behind two sisters (Terry Greninger and Cindy Hillyard), two daughters (Jamie and Jennifer) and 5 grandchildren. Nothing made her happier than to be with her grandkids and family.

I'm Jamie's fiance, and like many of you, Debra always treated me like part of her own family. I've only known her for 5 years, and I feel truly blessed to have had the opportunity to spend time with such a wonderful person. Now she is finally at peace . . . but we deeply miss her heart, soul, laughter, and wisdom.

Due to her extensive medical expenses, the life insurance her family received was short of covering all of the funeral expenses. Her two daughters are still struggling to cope with her passing and pay for the last remaining expense, her headstone.

I couldn’t think of a better Christmas gift to her family than to start a campaign to raise funds for the proper headstone that she deserves. 

I’m attempting to raise enough funds for Debra’s headstone to cover both the headstone, delivery, and the detailed engraving to match her late sister’s headstone. All funds raised will go directly to her daughters for the expense, and any additional will be donated to help fund research towards the prevention of this terrible disease. 

Please pass this message along to everyone whose life she touched so that we may remember her grace and compassion. Anything that you can find in your heart to donate would be greatly appreciated. 

Thank you, God bless, and Merry Christmas
