Becky, & "Bookish" as I knew her, was such a delightful, funny, and
caring person.  Although I never met her in person, she was a
cherished member of an international knitting circle.  What a fine lady!  
We are all so sad to hear she has left us.  Healing thoughts to all her
family and friends.

My heart felt condolences. I have known Rich & Becky for more than
45 years. Rich and Becky are amazing people. Becky had such a
clever wit. We would laugh a lot, when we were together or on the
phone. Being the kind of people they are, they were able to acquire
and retain an extremely large group of friends from many walks of life.
It was an honor to call her friend and will be an honor to always think
of her that way. May God bless her.
