To the Riddley children: You children are a most wonderful tribute to your mother.  You were some of the most intelligent, diligent, dedicated students I ever taught, and I’m sure your mother was very proud of you all.  As soon as I saw your mother’s name, I knew it was your mom, and my heart goes out to you in your loss.  Remember, you are her legacy.  May our Heavenly Father bring you comfort and peace. You are in my thoughts and prayers.   —Diane Teal

To all of the Riddley family, I extend my heartfelt sympathy to you in the passing of your precious mother! As a teacher, there are just some mothers that stand out in your memory as being the “top notch” parent. Your sweet mom is certainly one of those! I loved talking with her and seeing her interact with each of you! She was so very proud of you, and rightly so! I loved the Riddley family! I remember someone asking if she was ready for school to start one year, and her response was “no”, because she loved having you at home so much. How blessed you all are to have had such a Godly mother! She has earned her reward! Please know I have you all in my prayers!

Deb, I was 16 yrs old when I joined the family. I was quite and shy. I will never ever forget your big laugh and smile that embraced me with love!! I didn’t see you much, but when I did, I got a big hug and big smile! What an example you set for anybody who knew you! Your love for your God and family was BIG! You chill at the feet of Jesus, you earned it sweet lady! My cousin by marriage, I love you and will never forget you!

To the Family of Deborah, I am Ann Nalley Underwood. I am Deborah's cousin from Florida. Her Father and my Father were brothers. I am sorry for your loss. I will never forget the fond memories of visiting Deborah and the Family from the time I was about 3 or 4 years old. She was such a sweet soul back then and all through the years. I will Treasure the recent phone calls we had over the last few months and forever miss her sweet voice. I will never forget Deborah.
