My friend and sister, Debbie Ford

by: Deepak Chopra

It is with deep sorrow that I share with all of you the news of Debbie Ford’s passing.

Debbie and her sister, Arielle, have been a part of my family for over twenty years. We have shared together much of our growth – our joys and our sorrows.

Needless to say, Debbie will live on as part of us for the time remaining for us, and live on in all of you who benefited from her wisdom, love, compassion, and desire to elevate the lives of everyone she touched.

Debbie was very brave in the handling of her illness, a rare form of sarcoma. Even in her passing she sent us intimate messages and told us to celebrate her life.

In that spirit, even as we grieve, we will celebrate every moment we shared with her.

With love and gratitude for the love we all share,
