Elbert and family, Becky and I became friends in 5th grade and in the years that followed I have so many wonderful memories shared with her: my very first boy-girl parties, shopping trips together, long girl talks and so much laughter. I always admired her so much. Please accept my sincerest condolences in your loss, a loss so deeply shared by the Ragsdale Class of ‘68.

Becky and I have know each other since high school. We kept in touch during the years. She was a very special friend and loved by all that knew her. She will truly be missed but she is now at peace and know more pain. I'm sending prayers and love to her precious family and asking our Lord Jesus to wrap his loving arms around her family and give them comfort and love and peace.
