My deepest condolences are with the family. I don't have a memory to share, in fact I did not know Rebecca or her family personally. I work as a contractor at the Oldham County Health Dept where Rebecca's father is a well-respected board member and I heard of her passing there. I pray for peace on your hearts and in the days ahead, you are able to still feel her presence through her art, through nature and you're able celebrate the JOY she offered to you and this world. <3

Becca, I called her, was a kind hearted soul. A light shown about her through her kindness. I never heard her utter an unkind word.
I wish I could make all the pain go away but all I can do is to pray for your hearts to be strong and to find the peace and comfort that you need. Fly high with the angels, Becca.

I remember working with Rebecca at Gallery 104.
I bought a number of her handmade books for myself and as gifts to others.
She was a very caring and genuine person.
She will be missed.
I was so sorry to hear of her passing.

Rebecca was a beautiful woman with a servant attitude. She now rests in the arms of Jesus. God bless the family and their sorrows.

Rebecca was such a kind, sweet soul. Just recently, she was reaching out to ministries to bless them with donations and for years she poured into a young lady’s life mentoring her. She was so thoughtful. Rebecca loved to love on others and build them up.

She was so faithful to attend Bible Study every week, whether she was in person or joining through zoom. She was incredibly tender hearted and she loved deeply. Rebecca will be so missed.
