    We are so thankful to have met this lovely and kind lady, even if it was for only one day!

    I only met Becky a few times at company functions where her husband works. She was very friendly and full of joy. My sympathy goes out to her husband and family.

    Wish I had known Becky. I remember Herbie talking about her when teenagers in Ionia. We were hanging out in an old garage Herbie wanted buy and he was enamored by a girl ,Becky Sue, that he met in Lansing area. Iā€™m so sorry for your loss.
