    So sorry to hear of Rebecca's passing. I worked with her at AEA for many years and always enjoyed our chats.  Also bumped into her at J's a few times after her retirement. She was always so sweet and so proud of her boys.

    Rebecca's family,

    I got to know Rebecca a few years back. We replaced her roof for her and then later she had us replace her windows and her side porch so she could hang her many flowers from the porch. I had the opportunity to sit around her kitchen table many times and we would just talk about  subjects that had nothing to do with why I was there. I found her to be a very kind and gental person. She also liked to brag about her boys. I am sorry for your loss.

    Dan & Jeff,

    So sorry to hear about your mom.  I just ran into her a couple of weeks ago when I was out working in the yard.  Rebecca was always a good neighbor and was kind to our family.  Deepest sympathy to you and your family.
