Wouldn't it be great to have a conversation with Becky this morning and hear of her first year in Heaven! We would see the joy and enthusiasm of her youth. I love to remember our good times and know she is basking in the Love of Christ. See you soon, Becky...

May God Bless you girls. I knew your Mom may years ago, when she and I attended Midway Baptist Church as young girls. We attended school at Guilford School together. I knew your grandparents..Nate and Grace and Henry and Roger. We were all friends, but the years have passed and we have gone our separate ways, but I never forgot the fun she and I had as young girls. We started at Midway in 1948 and I got married in 1957 and left to join my husband in the military. We were gone 23 years and then returned to Midway again. I have seen your Mom a few times at furnerals. I am sorry I have not kept up the friendship.over the years. I know it is hard to give her up, but may God comfort you with His love. I have lost most all of my family in death and God's Love does help face each day. You are in our prayers!
