Mom Becky was an incredibly sweet, funny, generous, smart and strong woman. I enjoyed all the time I was able to spend with her. I will never forget when she came to San Diego for Jonathan’s graduation on the Midway Naval Ship. We enjoyed exploring the city and she met my Mom. This time will always be special to Jonathan and I and will live forever in our memory along with countless memories of her. We will forever miss her and will think about her daily. We love you Mom.

Dear Maddie and family,

I was deeply saddened to hear about the loss of your beloved mother, Becky, or a we knew her as Gurf. She was truly an extraordinary person, leaving behind a legacy of warmth, kindness, and selflessness.

Becky's giving nature touched the lives of so many, including mine. I'll always remember how she graciously watched over our dogs whenever we needed, displaying her caring spirit. Her dedication was unwavering, as evidenced by the time she stood in the rain to grill for Jack's 30th birthday party, creating unforgettable memories.

In times of need, Becky's support shone brightly. She stepped in to watch Rey when the CPS was on strike and circumstances were tough, showing her willingness to stand by her loved ones in any situation. And when the pandemic struck, her thoughtfulness knew no bounds – she sewed and delivered our first masks, showcasing her commitment to the well-being of those around her.

Becky's impact extended beyond these acts of kindness. She graciously shared her wonderful daughter, who became a cherished roommate and an integral part of our lives. Her laughter and smiles were infectious, etching a joyful mark on our hearts.

Maddie, during this time of mourning, please know that you and your family are in my thoughts. The love and memories you shared with your mother will forever keep her spirit alive. Becky's giving nature and the indelible moments she gifted us will remain a testament to her beautiful soul.

With heartfelt sympathy,

Becky I cannot believe you are gone! I am in shock and disbelief. As soon as I heard this I thought of our special days together going to the Disco stores and buying shoes, singing karaoke, Jackie's sweet 16 birthday party. All the times me and Julia spent together and the games we use to play. Visiting your mother and having sleep overs with Julia! She was such a sweet woman! All the times of holidays like the 4th of July on Homer. Maddie babysitting me and Jen. All the bears and packers games at your house with Matt on Paulina street. Hanging out with Johnathan and Tony. Me and Johnathan seeking jello shots! All the girls times of just hanging out at the house and singing! I literally cannot believe your gone! I love you Becky and I will treasure these memories always. The song you use to sing to me....tommrow it's only a day away when I was sad because you were leaving and I wanted to go with you! Uhhhhhhh man! My little calling her poopers! So many memories. Love you always and forever Becky! ❤️ may you rest in peace! My deepest condolences for the entire family! I will be there today to celebrate your life! You made such an impact on everyone you knew such a sweet genuine heart but, a bull when needed. I will always and forever remember you. Now with in heaven with god...until we meet again. Have that microphone waiting for us! Love your friend, extended family member, your niece by heart! Love you Bec! ❤️
