    I am so sorry to hear that Becky lost her fight, but know she is not suffering anymore. She was truly a talented, wonderful and brave person both inside and out. I am glad to have happy memories of her from years past growing up and hope that the memories you hold will be a strength to you all. My thoughts and prayers are with you Laura, Ms. Wilma, and the whole family... Uncle Elmer, Aunt Mary Lou & Cathy - you all were like my second family.
