    Jim, Jason, and Josh~ We are so sorry for your loss. Thinking back when our kids were little, and we would get together. It was always a good time. We always knew that Becky loved you guys, and always was so proud of her grandkids. I think she would have been proud also of how you all took care of her in her final days. She knew that she was loved. I love the picture of her on the day she was baptized ! Her smile said it all….. She was at peace, and only God gives us that! 💖
