I was lucky enough to be around Becky only a few times but the instant at ease feeling Becky brought to the table was an incredibly comfortable kindness. I remember one afternoon sitting around the kitchen table sharing stories and laughing all afternoon to the point my cheeks were sore the next day. I have thought about that day a few times since and it still makes me laugh!

Becky was a woman of great faith and love of Christ. No question of the smile on her face as He embraced her and of her joy as she joined the great cloud of witnesses who have gone before her.

I will never forget the time we all (Don, Denny, Janell and myself) gathered around your kitchen table and you broke into your beautiful harmonica rendition of Amazing Grace. Brings a smile to my face every time I remember.

I will miss you Becky but look forward to a time when we all will share a laugh again.

Becky’s laugh and smile will forever be in my memories of her... her animated ways of expression were a gift she shared with all who new and loved her. I always knew that lots of laughter would be a part of our time together. Becky always gave great hugs at hellos and goodbyes. She has touched my life in the most meaningful ways... I will forever love and miss her
