Jonas and Family,
I am sorry about your loss. Unfortunately, we are at the age where we will all be dealing with these situations. Things were much easier when we were teenagers. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family!

Becky and I were married for 17 wonderful years..She was the absolute sweetest person to everyone. A great wife and step mother to my son Jonas and daughter Tina who she raised as her own. We had two sons,Micky and Michael Vance,whom she loved with all of her heart and soul. If you knew Becky,she always had a smile on her face and never treated anyone with an unkind word or a negative word about anyone. We were still good friends with one another through out our lives. Becky was a special person as anyone who knew her would attest to that,giving love,hugs and smiles. I'll miss her as she was the best sweetest person I've ever known .She will be in Heaven with our son Micky whom we lost unexpectedly in 2006 . I know they will have lot of hugs and great conversation Rest in peace my dear friend you will be sadly missed by many.. Love You my sweet Becky......
