I will always remember how Aunt Becky couldn't miss Price is Right. She knew what time it was on and would always point at the clock when she was visiting. It was always nice to see her again & how happy she was to see us growing up. Then she would look at pictures of school dances of mine and get all gushy when there were guys in the pictures. She loved to see us dressed up & dancing. Aunt Becky definetly has a huge part of my memory.

Becky will always be remembered by me as the aunt who took no guff and loved to be around young people, especially all her nieces and nephews. She was willing to try new things like ice skate, operate a riding lawn mower, dance, bowl, ride in speedboats, enjoy a massage. She was eternally young at heart. I will always remember sleeping in the same bedroom with her when I visited, staying up late, looking through the photo albums, sharing our lives with no words, but lots of love.
