i have know becky all my life, she was one of the nicest individuals i have had the fortune of knowing. always friendly to everyone and never hearing her raise her voice to anyone. i seen her at our last class reunion, she was the first to greet me, we stood and talked for a while, trying to catch up on old times and enjoying a laugh or two about our time thru school and afterward.To her family and relatives i send my sympathy for their loss, she is not gone, just moved on to a better place to be reunited with her loved ones.
