    Becky was a very special woman and helped raise a great husband and wonderful children. I had hoped to come to the vigil and Funeral Mass, but I came down with a grievous cold (covid?) and should not be around other people.

She is being remembered in our daily prayers, Masses and Rosaries. May our Loving God grace you with Peace and may Becky be embraced by God’s Eternal Love and Everlasting life . Be assured of my prayers for all of you and Becky Jo.
