Jessica & Morris family:

While, sadly I did not have the opportunity of knowing Mrs. Morris (Jessica’s Mom) well—the times I did see her, she was always a classy lady who was so proud of Jessica and her family.
Our family is keeping the Morris family in our thoughts and prayers during this time of sadness. May God be with you all and comfort you....
Lots of Love!
Sabrina, Andrew, Arabella, & James Crawford

Becky was my sweet sister-n-law, but we always told each other we were sisters! Becky always spoke the best about people and her life was her example of how much she loved the lord. Becky, you will always live in my heart.

Becky was a good friend. I knew her at West Georgia College, but it was after that that we became good friends. We had some good times, crazy stunts, a trip to Florida, Bible studies with Pop Ellis, and going to the races - to mention only a few! We had lost close contact in the last few years, but when we did talk it was like time had stood still! Will always remember the good times!
Love,
Nancy Loeffel

I remember Becky from Roswell Street Baptist Church.
I was blessed to be her friend, even though we lost contact over the past few years.
We would share many things and prayers .
She always had a song in her heart, and many times she would be humming one when I was with her.
She was a truly classy lady

Becky was one of my best friends.. Our families were next door neighbors and we grew up together. She was very serious about life and things pertaining to Jesus Christ. She was always well-dressed and had her make-up on. When my daughter died, she wrote a poem that astonished me and touched my heart deeply. Her writing and poetic abilities were far beyond anything I've ever read before. She was a dynamic woman and definitely a princess! I will miss her more than she knows. I will be looking forward to the day we meet in Heaven.

I love you, Becky

Sincerely,
Anita

I will always remember Becky‘s strong endurance through all of her many health issues. She was a strong woman; she was also a strong witness because her faith sustained her throughout life. Wonderful memories sitting on the bleachers at Wheeler baseball. I can still see her dressed so beautifully with her many hats, coming into church what a picture! We are so sorry for your loss.
