Bruce, Audrey, & Derek I'm so sorry to hear about Becky. She's been on my mind lately. I tried calling today but found the phone was disconnected. My heart fell. I called Judy and learned the sad news.
Becky was one of my oldest & dearest friends. When we began 1st grade we met & became friends that lasted all these years. We shared so many good times. Laughter was always a part of our times together, even in troubled times we found something to make each other giggle a little.
One memory is Friday night ball games. Mama and Daddy use to drive us. They always let us decorate the car and hoop & holler to and from the games.
Another fun memory is Becky spending the night at my home. We would watch Champagne Theatre. We would pour ginger ale into champagne glasses, light a candle. The candle had a special purpose; we toasted marshmallows over the flame. LOL
I loved Becky so very much, & am going to miss our phone chats. One day we will be laughing together again.
My prayers are with each of you and your families
Love and Prayers from,

Becky, you and my mother, Virginia Wetzel, are together in Heaven now. I remember all the stories of you and my mom growing up together. I'm so sorry cancer got you too. I know you must be singing in heaven and dancing for eternity. I hope your family is comforted by God and feels the love he promises us. So sorry to see you've gone but you will not be forgotten.

I remember you well, I think of all of you almost everyday! We have been a part of each other’s lives for over 44 yrs! That’s not friends that’s family! You where like a mom to me. Audrea and I would be together everyday playing outside as a kid. You would make us lunch and then out the door Audrea and I would go to make mud pies for dessert! We used to play Charlie Brown in the house and dance around around and you would just laugh and smile at us. Tell us how silly we where. I love you dearly and you will be missed! Rest In Peace!! Fly high my Angel!!
