W. D., Dale and family,

I am so sorry to hear of the death of Becky. You are in my thoughts and prayers as we head to the holiday season. I know you will miss her terribly. May God give you strength during this time.

I have known Becky for about 40 years. Shelia and I met in my 1st year of College. She and I became friends so I met her Mom. The 1st time I met her we were at the Blue Bell Employees’ Store. Shelia and I stopped in and Becky and Pam were shopping. Shelia tried on a few things. Shelia and Pam got in an argument and Becky was trying to straighten Shelia out. I wanted to run, listening to them. I did not know her Mother well so I was thinking she was going to jump on me too, but she did not. Then my brother married Shelia so we became like Family. We saw each other at wedding, funerals, showers and mainly Heather’s Birthday parties. I know 1st hand how much her kids, and grandkids meant to her. They were always first. I know she is thrilled to see her girls again. Becky, you will be missed, love you! See you again! Lorrie and Bobby
