I so wanted to come to Becky's memorial service but the snow has kept me home. I knew Becky ever since she became a zoo docent and worked with her many times in the ZOOM program. My most recent memory of her was walking past My Big Back Yard, on the way to the Loft, and seeing Becky there in the chicken yard. She was the relief for the keepers so they could go to lunch. Luckily, it was a semi-nice day, but I thought, wow, she is brave to sign up to do that outside in September. The weather can be cold at that time and I won't even do that. It was quite some dedication on Becky's part. My condolences to your family on your loss. Becky touched the hearts of many people and children.
