    It is with deep sadness that i learned of Becky's passing. She was one of my best friends in nursing school and though we lost touch as the years past, I never stopped loving her or thinking of her. She was a beautiful person inside and out. Gentle, loving and kind to everyone. Heaven has claimed another angel.
