    I will never forget the first day I met Becky, they were looking at a house in my old neighborhood and she knocked on my door to get some input, just so happen I was potty training my young son and he was running around unclothed!!! Didnt even phase her!! Move forward from there say 5 years when my son was diagnosed with a begin brain tumor, this amazing woman went above and beyond for my family and I could never have ever thanked her enough. Im so sorry for your loss!

    I knew Becky through Facebook. We spent many hours talking back and forth. I just learned of her passing this evening. I feel like I’ve lost a dear friend. She was so proud of her family. I know Becky will be greatly missed by all of the many lives she touched. I remember her great faith and am convinced that she’s with her Lord and Savior in Paradise.

    Pete and Zachary,

    I am so sorry for your loss. Here it is over a month and I’m just learning of Becky’s passing. Becky would always tell me to call her anytime for coffee, and if I ever needed anything she’d be there for me. Becky was a kind, caring woman with a genuine concern for people and society. In Sept 2017, I did meet with her for coffee and I’m so glad I did. We talk about our grown children, and like a mother, Becky gave me advice. She told me of Zach’s wonderful accomplishments and she was looking forward to his upcoming graduation. Once again I am truly sorry for your loss, Pete and Zach. Becky will be deeply missed.

    Pete and Zack. I’m at loss for words. I realize this is so late but I just read about today. I’ve been wondering why she had suddenly stopped chatting with me and responding to my post, I thought she was mad at me. Today I investigated why and I’m shocked. I
    I’m from Michigan and we had been talking about you and her, well mostly her trying to convince you to move.
    I am so so sorry about her passing. What happen? Was it sudden? Never mind I don’t want to bring up sad memories. Sending my christian sympathy to you both.
    She was such a joy, she always uplifted me with her wit, joy and her love of life. I feel like I lost one of best friends and confidante.
    I’m just stunned. I am truly sorry.
