We both worked with Becky for many years at H.E.B. She was great to work with and made you feel good. She was dedicated to her job and customers. She was highly missed when she had to retire.

Granny has treated me like family since the first time I met her. Through many Thanksgivings, family dinners and daytime visits I fell in love with "Granny". She really knew how to make someone feel special and invited. I will greatly miss her. ♥

Cooking with Granny will forever be my favorite memory. Many special memories were made wearing Granny's over-sized apron as I trailed bare foot behind her.
