My deepest sympathy to Becky’s family. I had the privilege of working with Becky for many years. She was a great influence on many kids. She also taught me things and I was her boss. The example that comes to mind is when she told me, Never squat when you're wearing spurs”. She will be missed. God bless!

Growing up, Becky was my school counselor, a fellow church choir singer, and friend. She had a beautiful voice and such a kind heart. She always supported me, even in times of struggle. Her laugh could always brighten my day. I still can't believe that she is gone. She will be missed.
