The pictures on the video made me cry. She was a beautiful woman, inside and out. The seventeen years we worked together she was my best friend. She tried to help me keep Richard straight, and most of the time we succeeded! Her pleasant disposition, calm demeanor and especially her Christian testimony were an inspiration to me. I will miss her, but I have already missed her the last few years. Mary Lee Hall

Becky and family, so very sorry for your loss. May God surround you with His love and give you peace and comfort in the days to come. I met your mother only one time, but she left me with a very deep impression of what kind of woman she was. She was kind, friendly, and very giving. It has been years since I first met her, but the nature of your mother is still with me. My prayers are with you as well as my love.
