I remember working with you and you would introduce me as “The Leasing Queen”. Tough as nails, but the sweetest person. You always gave me great advice on being a mother. Memories I will cherish forever. Rest In Peace, friend.

I met Beckey when she was the Manager for The Shores at Las Colinas. I remember when she got hired, she was nervous. We remain friends since 2007. We talked all the time, about the ups and downs in the multi family industry. About people that did us right, and people that did us wrong. Beckey did have a good heart at the end of the day. I just talked to Beckey a couple of weeks ago. She told me that she finally retired and she was happy. My condolences to her family and children and siblings. You will be Missed Becky, that laugh it will be missed! Rest in peace my friend...
