Becky was my very first sports coach (soccer) in Tampa when I was 11. She was always very encouraging and kind, and my mother loved having her as a friend. My heart goes out to Gary and Tracy. Im so sad to hear this news. Shawn Jenkins

Tracey ~ I can only say that my thoughts and prayers are with the family at this moment. I can see the family resemblance you have of your Mother. May you always remember she is with you now in spirit and watching over you from afar. Find comfort in the joy and peace she is experiencing in Jesus' arms until you meet again. If you need anything you can call or contact me through Facebook. May God grant you peace and fill your heart with memories to last an eternity. Condolences, Gwen L. Shaffer Taneytown, MD
