Just wanted to let you know how I really enjoyed my time with Becky. Kelly, Ann, Becky and I had some wonderful and memorable times. I am sure her family will miss her terribly. My best wishes for all the family with their loss. Beverly Fisher

My Aunt Becky was more to me than an aunt, she was like my older sister. No matter how many miles separated us, it was like we saw each other yesterday. She was beautiful inside and out, full of energy and life. Life may not have been kind to her at times but she never let that get in her way. She loved her family unconditionally, and was very proud of her children. Our lives seemed to be parallel, so there was that special connection we had. I only hope to be as gracious, strong, understanding and forgiving as she was. We love you and will miss you more than words can express.

She was our biggest fan! I still hear her voice in our highlight video in 1993, “we’re going to state”...Kelly and family, I am so sorry for your loss, I loved your mom❤️
