    Prayers for this entire family. I grew up with Maria, in the Myers household, and loved every minute of it. Becky and Rutt both, were a joy to be around. I’ll miss Becky’s laugh. I’ll miss her smile. She was a second mom to me. Maria, I’m here if you need me – don’t forget that. Prayers of peace to you, your daughters, and ALL of the grand kids. Rest in the peace of the Lord, Becky. I bet Rutt was waiting for you, on the other side. There’s no doubt in my mind.
    With Love,
    Aunt Shana
