Becky was more than family she was a friend and confidant since childhood! I will be forever grateful that God arranged for Becky,Donna and I to seize the moments for a lunch date and a visit just a couple weeks before her passing! We could always pick up any conversation right where we left off! Becky\'s love for her family was always a part of every conversation! She loved y\'all so much! My prayers continue for all who love Becky. She will be greatly missed on this side of heaven. May God bring peace and comfort!

Becky was a dear high school friend. Her husband, Danny Himes, was my good Careys Run Church friend. A happy memory is Phyllis Hopkins and I visiting Becky and Danny after the birth of their child. They were so proud and happy. Condolences to all who love Becky.
