I met Becky in high school and we were pretty much inseparable through high school! I have so many fond memories growing up over at their house and Helen was such a sweet and humble woman! I can't remember anything negative ever coming out of her mouth she just always walked in the background with such grace & dignity always wanting to help if she could. Becky my thoughts and prayers are with you find peace and comfort that's she in the arms of the Lord and hang on to those precious memories.
