Four grandchildren include: Kara Craig, Kevin Craig, Kyndal Kennedy and Caston Kennedy. To this is added a host of extended family and friends.

Becky was affectionately known as a “shiny” aunt to adoring nieces, a constant selfless presence to her children, a best friend and confidant to her sisters and a soul mate to her husband. Becky enjoyed traveling, river trips and movies, but most of all spending time with and loving her children and grandchildren. She will be forever missed and eternally in our hearts.

Four years now and the pain still is as it was when we said goodbye to you. Cannot stop the hurt nor the tears. Its not right that I, the older sister, should lose my baby sister. All I know is God knows why and someday He will tell me. God is my strength for everyday and everything. I could not bear this if I didn't know Jesus. Becky, there are no words ...none...to say how precious, wonderful, giving, loving, and dear you were to everyone....always going out of your way to be a help. If this world had more people like you in it there would be a whole lot less turmoil. I really don't have words to say how broken my heart is and always will be without you.

Mrs. Eve, I wish to introduce myself to you- I am your 6th cousin once removed. We are related through your father's side which traces back to my Rutherford clan. You would be happy to know that many of your distant relatives and our forefathers have been sworn to a life of service to our fellow men. In fact, you have a 6th cousin who is a nurse in San Antonio, another cousin who is a small country town triage doctor here in Florida and my life has been spent in law enforcement, the military, welfare case management and now teaching. I live in Florida. As for your children, I know all too well how hard it is for them as I lost my hero- my Dad from cancer 3 months before my husband and my children's father died from complications of a car accident induced coma. My husband never knew our youngest son. Both Dad and Bob died in 1998. And though the old saying is time heals wounds - some wounds seem to never close completely. If your children should ever need a strong shoulder I offer mine to them. Always and forever family. Sweet dreams My lady.

In 3 days it will be 18 months since I said goodbye to you and my heart is as heavy now as it was then. We learn to live with tragedy and heartaches as Carol said, but the pain never goes away. Because you were the sweetest and loveliest person ever to live on this earth you are so sorely missed by many. Angela can't talk and say "mom" without crying. We would not have wanted you to stay on this cruel earth and suffer as you did any more so we are trying everyday to exist without you. I love you my baby sister and you're in my heart and mind forever.

Becky was my best friend while we both were going through chemo, I was three treatments ahead of her and still remember the stories we would tell each other. I still remember the first day she started her treatment, she was the most loving person, along with her sister who always accompanied her to treatments, I will always Love her, rest in peace my friend.

As I viewed all of Becky's beautiful pictures, I prayed for the God of Heaven to touch her family with His Mighty Hand and comfort you all with His Peace that passes all understanding. We prayed so many prayers but God chose to bring her healing on the other side. Even though we don't understand, we trust in God and believe she is now being sheltered in His Arms. With continual love, thoughts and prayers for all the family in the days to come, God bless you all. From the POWH family.

I remember Becky from when I was 12 years old! I am Rosie McCormick's little sister. Becky was like another sister! She helped me fix my hair and get pretty for my first dance! She was patient and so sweet! She let me "tag along" with her and Rosie, and Ethel! She was fun and so sweet! Beautiful!
