Dear family, I am so sorry for your loss. I will always remember Becky as Grandpa and Grandma Ruble's neighbor. She was always aware of all of our familys news and it made me proud to think that she was Grandma's friend. I do know that now she is in heaven rejoicing in the fact that they are together now. None of us are safe, they are talking about all of us. Please remember your special times with Becky and know that she is in peace now. You are all in my prayers. Theresa (Priscilla's daughter)

Dear Family,    Your loss is great, for Becky was such a special person to each and every one of you. She was also my friend, my parents friends and very close to her church family. I shall remember Becky laughing. Sitting on the front porch at mom and dads and sharing stories of growing up in Kentucky, old time receipes and sharing family stories. I shall think of her and Mom, often saying that the people in Fountain City would recognize their behinds before they could their faces, because the two of them were always bending over pulling weeds. I am so sorry for your loss. I also realize that the reunion will be great in heaven.....just think of the loved ones waiting for her there. Love and prayers to all of you.   Jeanette
