Memories Timeline


  1. I thank God for the many years of friendship he gave us. I must admit, I’m not handling this well my dear. I cannot begin to imagine what your family is going through. (I’m over here trying to be strong for them because that’s what best friends are supposed to do but instead, they’re the ones consoling me). I guess the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.
    You and I were supposed to have many more years of forgetting each others birthdays, reminiscing about the stupid things we did as teenagers, and the crazy fun we had. The secrets we shared as well as the pain and hardship. The different friends we made from the weirdest experiences like crashing your VW. There is no one that can replace you Bug. You were brave and fearless, (and sometimes I thought you were going to get us into so much trouble. It’s a good thing I was the level headed one, lol). You definitely were one of a kind.
    I understand we have no say when it’s time for us to go but I want you to know, I wasn’t ready. Thank you for loving my children, even though they didn’t see much of you after you moved, they always knew your family was their family. And thank you for letting me e a part of yours. I promise I will be there if they need me. I’m just a phone call away.
    I wish, I prayed you could have stayed longer, but Gods plan was different. So I thank Him over and over for the gift of your friendship and for the recent trip you made so we can just spend time being silly kids again.
    Keep us in your prayers, we’re going to need them. Love you Bug! Love you so much! I’m sure going to miss you.
    P.S. I really have no idea what these different candles mean so I just chose the first one.

  2. I’m so thankful God brought Becky into my family’s lives. Her heart and kindness will forever impact us all. She welcomed me into her home as one of her own. I will never forget that, and I admire her for doing so, so gracefully. She has inspired me in so many ways, I’ve always admired her. Unfortunately I never expressed this to her in my older years. I took for granted the time I thought I’d have to tell her these things. In her honor I will always put my best foot forward. May God surround her children, family, and friends with love and healing. I love you Ashley, Tatum, and Lucas.

  3. Becca, I’m sorry😭😭😭 I’m sorry we lost touch with each other! I’m sorry I wasn’t a better friend! I’m sorry we didn’t get to dance the night away like we planned. I’m sorry I didn’t talk to you more on Facebook or stop by your house the 100 times I drove down your street! We got busy with life didn’t we Becca! 😭😭 Because we were busy with life, I didn’t get to tell you how much I love you or how much your friendship meant to me! 😭😭😭 You were a bright star in my life during our days that we worked together! Like you said, we were like sizters! I always went to work hoping to brighten your day because you were going through so much, but now that I look back on our time together it was you who brightened my day! You always had a hug for me and a smile that I will remember forever! You are a gentle soul Becca, full of life and love! That’s why you were loved by so many♡♡♡♡♡
    I guess what they say is true. God always takes the best ones home first! I’m so glad to know that you lived/walked in faith with your children by your side! I know they were the “loves” of your life.
    I could see that every time you spoke of them. They had the best mom/gma ever!
    My heart is broken for them!
    I think about you often Becca. I always looked for the white car/truck in passing and always think about you when I buy grapefruit I’ve often asked the nurses from Lutheran about you and “always” tell them to tell you hi and that I missed you! Because I do. And now, it’s gonna be forever missing you! !😭😭😭 I guess now you get to see the people you’ve been missing for all this time. Like your mom, your son, & Jeremy.♡ Did you hold your son tight and not let him go when you first saw him? Was his smile as bright as yours when he grabbed your hand to show you around heaven? My heart hurts Becca, I miss you! I can’t believe your gone! It seem like just yesterday I was hugging you and wishing you well on your new job. I’m sorry that our time together was so short. I guess God has more important plans for you! Most of all, I’m sorry, I didn’t get to say goodbye! To hug you one last time! I love you Becca! Please, say hi to my mom for me! Lots of smiles and hugs! That’s how I will always remember you!
    Goodbye my sweet friend! Until we meet again!
