Becky will be sadly missed by us, she was about the best sister in law one could have. She was the perfect wife for my brother also, and such a good mother to her children. Pat and George

I'm so sorry about Becky and send my prayers to all her loving family. I grew up with Becky and Poncho and consider them both to be my "sisters". Becky had a heart of gold. I will miss her FL trips with Poncho and having lunch along the way. Sending prayers. Rita Mobley
