Steve, Lauri,Suzanne and family, I just saw this announcement. To say I am saddened is an understatement. Becky was a beautiful, honest caring person. I cherish the paintings she gave me and sweet memories. She absolutely adored you girls. She always carried Stevie in her heart and now she is hugging all over him. We lost touch so I wasn't aware of how her family had grown. She loved her soul mate Steve and Hunter did no wrong. My heart goes out to you all. I know you all will miss her terribly. May God hold you up and give you peace.

Steve, Lauri, and Suzanne. I just watched the video tribute, and that definitely was Beck. I am so thankful that I got to know her through softball. The friendship grew and I will forever cherish all the memories with Beck. From
softball, she also talked me into bowling with them. Beck May have regretted that one because bowling was not one of my better activities . But some of my most cherished memories were fishing together. Beck made all the times we shared extra special. And she will ALWAYS have a special place in my heart. I will always treasure the “angels” she made for me and my Mom. I look at them now, and smile because Beck will always be with me. Love you all dearly. KD

Steve and Family,
I am so very shocked and saddened to learn of Becky’s passing. I knew her through Tom Gibson’s business. She was always so very helpful and made talking about insurance a pleasant experience.
My thoughts and prayers are with all of you.

I am in disbelief of Ms. Becky's passing. I loved her so much, she was my friend. We had hopes to get together eventually, I will definitely see her on the other side. I am so sorry for your loss of her beautiful soul. I know she was met by Stevie at the gates to heaven. My prayers are with you and my heart is filled with pain.
My deepest condolences,

Steve, I remember Becky calling me from Newberry Hospital to report on mother who had just been taken there with a stroke. Eugene was on the way, but had not gotten there yet. I was home in the bed sick. Her call reassured me so much and I will never forget it. You all were good neighbors of my parents, Dove and Evelyn Connelly. I send sympathy and prayers on behalf of my sister, Jewel and myself. -Drucie

Our condolences go out to Steve and the rest of her family. My son Chris spent many an hour at their house during his high school days. She always greeted you with a smile. She has been reunited with Stevie and they are smiling down from Heaven. Please know that she is in good hands and be comforted that she is with her Lord and Savior. May God bless and comfort the family.
