I am so sad that I will not see Becky in choir anymore. She was a faithful member, and that meant that I got to talk with her quite a bit twice a week...as we altos generally would be talking when we weren't supposed to be. Becky had a very dry sense of humor, which I enjoyed. She made me laugh every time I saw her, and that's the truth. My thoughts and prayers will continue to be with Steve, as well as the rest of Becky's family.
