I worked with Becky at the American Red Cross. She was a kind, caring person. My prayers will be with the family during this difficult time. God Bless.

My deepest sorrows go out to Becky's family. Becky and I grew up together we played in the band together were in Girl Scouts for 12 years together and worked together at mcdonalds and then at the Red Cross. She was a dear friend. We had wonderful memories together and that is what I will always remember. I hope and pray that her boys will do the same until they meet their sweet and loving mother again in heaven.
