I will alway think of her driving that green T Bird in and out of Glen Cove. Such a sweet lady and great mom. My prayers are lifted for Bruce and Scott and her family and friends.

Rebecca will be sorely missed. She was a firecracker with an incredible sense of humor. She made sure to say hello anytime she came by my office, whether it was to pick up her “dirty” magazines (aka trashy tabloids) or just to chat. She was a kind and funny individual who kept everyone at the Waterford laughing. Over the 4.5 years I was there, she quickly became one of my favorites. She truly loved her family and was so proud of the boys she’s raised and the families they have created. Rest In Peace, sweet lady! Love always, Emma Boone.
