    My heart goes out to the family of Debra Fields. I did not have the pleasure of knowing Ms. Fields but my prayers will be with her family.

    I am very sorry to hear this tragic news. I was once a part of this family, i was Debbie's son-in-law and she was an amazing woman. My heart is broken to know that a wonderful person such as Debbie has come to such a horrifying end to her life. She was a great truck driver and she was very careful and cautious when driving a Semi Truck. I personally have teamed with her while driving 18 wheelers as we traveled from the east coast to the west coast in all kinds of weather condtions and i was never afraid of her abilities to operate such a large piece of equipment. I am still in shock and will be for quite sometimes. God Bless her family, her children, her brothers and sisters and her grandchildren whom she loved very much. I will personally miss her myself.
