    Words can not be said for how deeply sad this day is. I loved Deanna like a daughter most of her life. My heart aches for Sandy, Nicole and Kenny but most of all her dear son Brayden. May God hold your heart and soul through this painful time in your lives.

    “A heart of gold stopped beating, two shining eyes at rest. God broke our hearts to prove to us HE only takes the BEST.”

    Love you forever!

    So very sorry to Deanna’s family and friends. I’m thinking about you all, and praying for her sweet son, that he tries to find some sort of understanding in all this. I met Deanna when I lived in New Athens a few years ago. We stayed in touch through Facebook and Snapchat. She was so kind and was a great friend. I will miss her snapchats which usually consisted of laughing, smiling, and her little boy. RIP sweet mama!

    I knew Deanna since she was young. She went to school with three of our children. I watched her grow up into a beautiful young Oman and wonderful mother. Deanna loved Brayden very much. He got off of the school in front of our house and I would talk to Deanna at Brayden different times. He would come to the house when he was selling things for school. Sometimes just to visit as he’d tell Deanna he wanted to come
