I knew Becky as a little girl, thru Sandy Sylvester-Hooper. They both were such joy to be around. Becky could talk like Donald Duck and got so tired of us asking, she wouldn't do it anymore!
I've spoken with Becky on FB a few times and boy, she sure did love those babies! Such a great loss and my prayers of comfort and peace are with the family in the days ahead. 🙏
