So sorry for your loss, I worked with Becky and enjoyed her tremendously.

I just learned of Becky’s passing. She will be missed. Having gone to church and school with Bryan in high school, I hadn’t seen her for years until we started talking while she was checking me out at Dollar Tree 8 or 10 years ago. Bryan, she was so proud of you and loved her family so much! She was always excited to talk about you guys. I will never forget her contagious smile as it makes me smile just thinking of it right now. My prayers for your family will continue as the loss of a mother is one I can’t even imagine.
