Johanna, Tyler, Paige, Audrey and Opal,

Please know our hearts are with you. We know the coming days will be difficult but take time to smile as you remember the good times you had with Mom Becky. Smile even bigger when you sincerely realize God’s plan for her is best. Although, you miss her, rejoice in knowing she’s with her ABBA Father and He delights in having her home.

Hugs from our family to yours! We’re here for you!

My dear friends, we are so sorry. I have so many memories of Becky, and I can smell it as I type all the wonderful food she would cook. She will be missed, we pray for comfort and healing for all! God Bless! Love you all! A verse for you: 1 Peter 5:10 (NIV)
And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast.
