Debra Cox – God has a very special angel with him today.By
Debra Cox, our long time friend and sweet wonderful volunteer has left this world and is with Jesus today in paradise. Debra is very much missed and loved by those here on earth who are separated from her temporarily in death. When it is our turn to go home to our loving God, we will rejoice again in the company of our precious friend.
Debra passed away last night, leaving behind her cherished husband and beloved children. She still reaches out to those in need through Ray as he is donating what she had gathered in her lifetime and will now be blessing others with it.
She has a darling little granddaughter, Amber, that we will be watching grow up in the legacy of love her grandmother set for her. Our hearts and prayers go out to the entire family and all that know and love her.
Ray is such a special sweetheart. He is honoring Debra’s memory by making sure that all of her work, collections, clothing and things she left behind are being used to bless the lives of the sick and needy. In his time of sorrow and need, he is expending efforts to carry on the work that he has spent a lifetime sharing with Debra. Such an unselfish kind response to his own pain is typical of Ray.
Debra and Ray are God’s special team to answer prayers of those here on earth desperate for assistance. Even though Debra is working on other other side in paradise and Ray is working on this side on earth to help God answer prayers, they are only physically separated from death but always together forever in the life and love of the heart.
Debra’s children, grandchildren and extended family have a legacy of all the love, work and kindness both Ray and Debra have extended to the downtrodden, sick, afflicted and most helpless of God’s children. May her memory always burn brightly as a legacy of love and caring to everyone.
Prayers for Ray and Debra’s extended family are most gratefully welcomed. Thank you in advance for your love and caring for this special family in their time of separation and sorrow.
Here is our original post on Debra a few years back: Let us introduce you to a very special leader-servant. Her name is Debra Cox and she is very much in tune with the Holy Spirit. She has been answering prayers for many years, along with her husband Ray. In her community, babies have blankets, sleepers, soft toys, special needs filled and given love from a stranger they may never meet that loves them so much she will sacrifice even her health to provide essentials for them through local hospital and organizations.
I first met Debra years ago. Such a wonderful lady, and so kind. When told about the how the sick and needy babies in her area were suffering from the lack of essentials, her response was “Yea, Lord, I am here – send me!” She jumped right in and gathered volunteers around her to help. Most of the work she did herself, and she is very much loved by all of us.
Debra paid a very high price – her sacrifice and efforts over the years has claimed her health. Today she had surgery for cancer and while some of it was removed, she has weeks of chemotherapy to rid her body of the thousands of nodules that remain. She is no longer able to do all the compassionate service work she has done in the past, but her husband told us today that as soon as she is able, she has already targeted another area of need to address when she gets her feet under her. What a lady, what an angel, and what a fine example of being Christ-like she has set for all of us.
We know God is carefully watching over her with love and compassion and our prayers are with her. What we are calling for today, is not fabric, baby clothing, sewing supplies or hygiene supplies – though we do need those – what we need the most today are prayer for our beloved Debra, and for her comfort and peace while she goes through this earthly trial.
Soft hugs, Debra – we love you!!!!
