    Dwayne & family, so very sorry for the passing of your sister Dwayne (it's me, Billie Jo) from Perkins, I have known of Becky through being a very regular customer of kwikstar.. I was shocked to see this, for one; I swear I just saw her at Aldi a week ago, and two; that she was your sister :'( may God be of comfort and healing at this very difficult time!

    So sorry for your loss. I remember working with Becky at the Eagles Club years ago, and her kind spirit. She was such a hard worker and always had a smile on her face. Praying for peace and comfort that only our Lord can provide at this time.
