Dear Friends and Family, All the members of Becky's family THANK YOU for your love, support, prayers, presence and friendship. You have walked with all of us along this journey in various ways for many, many years. We are truly grateful. Mom is now once again, all that she longed to be, young, free, fully-abled and dancing in the arms of her lifetime partner and love of her life, my Dad, Les. We will surely miss Mom's physical presence here but all we'll need do is look into the eyes of Becky's family & friends and we will see HER, here among us, all of our days. Best of all, we now have two amazing angels watching over us - Mom and Dad, the VERY BEST anyone could ever hope for. With much love and thanks and gratitude.
Peace and Blessings to All!
Tina Mike, Terry Tompkins and All the members of Becky's Family
