Will miss you
Rest in blessed Peace Becky. You journey wasn’t always an easy one and our paths didn’t cross often but I’ll remember your exuberance and your smile
I will miss you, my dear sister in Christ, but we shall meet again in the presence of our blessed Lord and Savior! Ann McGehee
Becky’s faithful attendance at the worship of God, even when it was hard for her to make it, was a testimony to her love for Jesus. Also, she was a witness and encouragement to all who knew her. I look forward to seeing her in glory one day soon.
The thing I most rememer about Becky was her huge grin, and how it lit up her whole face. We will miss that special light but know that she is home at last.
