Oh my I am so very sorry for your family's loss. What a sad thing to lose our loved ones when they are so young. It was nice to read that Rebecca was in the band at Walter Wellborn when she was in high school. I was in the band at Anniston but was friends with many who were in the Wellborn band in the 70's. I hope that you can find some comfort by sharing memories of Rebecca with others. God also provides comfort, he comforts us in all our trials.(2 Corinthians 1:3,4) He also gives us the hope that we will see our loved ones again by means of the resurrection. (John 11:25). Please accept my deepest sympathy in your family's loss of this beautiful young woman.

My favorite memory with Beck is when she asked me to be in the room with her when she had Deker. That was such a special moment in my life to be there when my nephew was born and I will cherish that memory forever.

Rebecca and I met when we were in elementary school but became best friends when we were 12. I honestly don’t even remember how it happened, but I can’t remember much from before we were best friends. We were inseparable and always laughing at things that no one else understood or thought was funny. She was definitely a ray of sunshine in my life. Our lives took us on different paths, she became a mother at a young age and I joined the Navy and moved away. But every time we saw each other we were able to pick up right where we left off. She was so beautiful, funny, kind and very intelligent. She was just an amazing person in general. Amazing mother, sister, friend, aunt, niece, etc. So many people loved her and I feel lucky to have been her best friend!
