    I was so shocked to hear the news of Becky’s passing. She was simply – beautiful. I can not imagine the joy she must be feeling now that she is no longer a prisoner in her earthly body. Her spirit is with Jesus, her Redeemer. One day I hope to give her a big hug in heaven! Prayers for all of the family.and may God bless you all now and in the days ahead..

    I met Becky at UNCW as the captain of our pompom squad. She was a great leader and awesome dancer. I later reunited with her at Port City Community Church, where we were in the same small group. It was then that we shared our faith in Jesus. Becky was a determined individual, kind, and tender hearted. I so admired her art ability.She drew the most beautiful picture with a pencil using her mouth among a gathering at church I was so embarrassed of my pic beside hers . We laughed so hard. I enjoyed meeting her service monkey. She was so proud of showing me his abilities. I just know she is teaching the Angels a dance! Becky’s perseverance in life taught me so much about Christ’s love. I will be praying for peace and God’s comfort for the family. I know you all supported her life and enriched it with an abundance of love and constant sacrifice. Becky … your journey is complete… free at lasr in your eternal home. Run and Dance like no one is watchingMy hear is sad today

    Becky has a beautiful spirit and even though I had not seen her in many years I have a fond memory of a girls night out many years ago at the Yellow Rose. May her spirit soar and she live on joyfully in our hearts.

    I worked with Becky for a couple years while I was a student at UNCW. I still think of you and Kristi often, Becky and our many conversations about life. You taught me a lot- but mostly how to laugh through the pain. I miss you and our days eating cookout together. I will cherish those memories always.
