Sad to see the passing of such a beautiful kind and caring lady, whom I have known since I was just a little girl. She loved her children dearly and I know she will be very missed. My thoughts and prayers are with each of you now and in the coming days.

My heart is broken for the loss of my friend. I loved this lady. We had such good times in the shop when she came and enjoyed going to pick her up and bring her to my house. She was the perfect Christian lady. Many prayers for all of you and hoping God gives you comfort in knowing she is celebrating in Heaven. Thank you all for allowing me a small part in her final rest.

Nana Becky took care of so many kids. I wonder if she truly realized the impact she had in their lives. I know for our family she was always Nana, Jake, Brianna, and Lyndsay loved her so much, and so did I. I know she was so happy to see Aunt Annie and Tom, and her beloved Tommy who she always continued to miss. She was one of the strongest women I've ever known and was a blessing and an inspiration to all of us.
