Written Jun 17, 2011 9:38amIt is with sad hearts that we said goodbye to Becky yesterday. She passed away at 3:30 p.m. She was surrounded by her mom, stepdad, daughter- Brieanna, Aunt Barb, Uncle Jay, brother-in-law Andy, and myself. We held her hands, comforted her, and let her know that were there and that she would be OK. It was very peaceful.Arrangments will be made today and then I will post another entry with the details.Thanks to everyone throughout this. Please continue to lift up her kids, family and friends in prayer. Her kids will need much love and support in the days to come.God Bless you all, Sarah.

Becky has been getting some very good rest today. The new mix of medications seems to have eased her agitation and is helping her to sleep much better.
Her dad, Steve and step-mom, Barb had spent the night with her. Barb fixed her hair real nice today and helped her look nice to see her daughters today.
No plans yet if we'll be able to move her. We'll keep you all posted.
Just a reminder of the following websites:
