Debbie’s love lives on through her sweet husband, Ray – thank you!!By
Debra Cox was a marvelous sweetheart who loved the babies and children everywhere. She put her love in action by doing marvelous charity work to make sure the sick and needy had warm clothes and bedding and essential items necessary for a great start in life for God’s tiniest and most helpless children.
Relief Share misses our beloved friend and volunteer – Debbie’s kind heart was felt over the miles and throughout the day as we pondered her kindness and generosity she shared with everyone with the help of her supportive husband, Ray. Heaven needed another angel and Debbie is probably very busy being God’s angel watching over babies for him.
Ray has kept her love alive and her good works continuing by his donations to Relief Share . Just recently he made a marvelous (and much needed donation) of a large amount of gorgeous fabric that is being used to make baby blankets, comfort lovey blankets, infant clothing, soft toys and more.
With the economy taking it’s toll on the ability of folks to donate, fabric donations are becoming essential for us to continue our charitable efforts. Ray knows and understands just how important donations are to help Relief Share answer God’s call the bless the lives of his most helpless little ones.
Ray also shared Debbie’s sewing supplies and machines with us so more volunteers have the tools and supplies they need to get involved. I know the angels are doing high fives, with Debbie in the lead, as they see Ray continuing to move the work forward and helping to turn tragedy into triumph in the lives of those who have great need and now are swaddled in beautiful warm baby quilts and have the necessary clothing to sustain life.
A letter from one of the hospitals we donate to stated: “your gift of baby items allowed us to send a baby home with all the necessities needed, a baby that previously had nothing - what a huge blessing, thank you. Your donation arrived just in the nick of time for that little one!” It is thank you letters like that, inspiring and motivating hearts and hands, that confirm the holy work we do for God.
Our hearts are full, we can never express enough gratitude for Ray Cox and his continuing love and help for the babies, done in memorium of our beloved Debbie. Usually, when someone passes, we say ‘rest in peace’, but we know Debbie – she is very very busy happily engaged in her calling as an angel helping everyone where ever she can. May we all live up to her standards and be happy in the life that God has given us.
If you are struggling and suffering and need a blessing, take a leaf from Debbie’s book and reach out to bless others. Debbie struggled with the cancer that finally took her life, but she lived life to the fullest and enriched the lives of all she came in contact with. That is the key – forget yourself and give your troubles to God (he wants you to and he is up 24/7 anyway) and after you have helped others and returned to your own troubles, you will find they are a lot less and easier to manage.
God bless you Ray – and God bless Debbie – we know you are there helping in the best way possible.
Love and hugs
