    Becky’s mom was always so good to me…Becky and I played together, went trick or treating every year and a zillion other things. Her dad worked nights and we had trouble being QUIET…I loved being at their house! Becky was always a part of my heart….she has her folks with her now. I’m so sorry to the family for the loss……

    To the family of Shirley Stahlman, I’m so sorry for your loved ones lost. Shirley was a beautiful Spirit inside and out. I grew up with Becky. We graduated in the class of 1973. Mother and daughter always had a contagious smile for everyone they came in contact with. Heaven gained 2 Beautiful Roses. They are reunited once again. God bless your loving family!
    Sincerely, Linda Boston
