Diane and family,
I was so sad to learn of Becky's passing. I am so very sorry for your loss. She was such a lovely woman and she always had a smile and a hello for me at Eddy Pond. She attended my exercise classes regularly and she will be missed. She was such a joy. May your cherished memories bring you comfort and may she rest in peace.

I am sorry for your loss. I have fond memories of going up to Field St to visit her and play.

She was a very wonderful lady.
