One thing I can say about Becky, her life has never been boring. March is always a stormy, unsettled month and it seems to have set the pace for her life. She has always had “highs” and “lows” but never the in-betweens.

When she was young, I felt at times I was raising three boys. Her older and younger brothers were usually left in the dust with their backyard activities. But when she decided she wanted to leave the tomboy stuff behind, she grew into a pretty and graceful young woman.

This is her senior high picture. The gateway to bigger things and she was ready for the climb. Becky always had a lot of energy and was blessed with brilliant ideas which she could implement into completion at the drop of a hat. If she was interested in the project, she was unmatched…..but following someone else’s plan always lacked her best efforts. Her reason being if it wasn’t up to standard why put effort into an unworthy project. This began a life of leading the pack.

Becky had several jobs and was well liked no matter what it was. She always saw a way to make it better and more successful. Of course this got the attention of her employer’s and she enjoyed some beneficial advances up the ladder of work.

Her two children and grandchildren are the light of her life. She tried to give them the best hope for the future and opportunities therein. Becky lives next door and is a lot of company to me…….she is usually the life of the party and loves a good time. All it takes is for her to walk into a room and the party is on.

As I write, her employment takes her out of town for the week but when she comes home we will celebrate her 58th year a little late. So Becky, at 1:15 a.m. you came into our lives on this day and we’re so glad you did. Watching your journey has given me a lot of memories and we’ve shared a lot of happy moments together.

Happy Birthday from your Mom…….
