Now a message from Becky: I want everyone I left behind, family and friends, including facebook friends to know I loved you all until the last beat of my heart. Most people go through life with only one best friend. I was blessed because I had several besties. Kathy, Diane, Rebecca, Rosy, Elaine, Ricky, Maxine, and I can't leave out Eric J.; they have been there with me through a lot over the years. Kathy, Diane, Eric, Rebecca, and Rosy have stuck with me through good and bad for over 40 years, never letting me go. That's true friends. I love all of my besties; we shared a lot of secrets that I can say I'll never tell. I'll take our secrets to my grave, lol. Keep laughing. I'm going home to be with my Lord God and family. God has plans for all of us and I have fulfilled what he meant for me to do here on earth. I fought hard and got tired, so I took His hand and went home, and I will reunite with you all someday. But, in the meantime, live and love your lives like everyday is your last, and I'll watch over you with open wings.

And to Ryan, my grandson, be that special man I know you are meant to be; make me prouder than I already am, and "I love you more".

If you see my family, give them a hug and a special hug for Ryan and Chris. Go live your life and enjoy every minute you have with the ones you love, because tomorrow has no promises that you or your loved ones will be there. I'm lucky because I get the chance to tell you all goodbye and I love you. And I got to write my own obituary; how awesome is that, lol.

Until we meet again, keep laughing your way through life!

Hugs and Kisses...
