My heart goes out to the family of Rebecca! I loved her very much! She went with my late husband and I to a karaoke club once and we had fun in laughter and music. She always made me smile and carried a humble kind heart. We use to sit on my daughter's porch and chat our beliefs and views. We shared several Thanksgiving dinners and sometimes Christmas gatherings in the past years before she moved to Carolina. She will be missed by myself and family. God Bless the family and know you are in our prayers.
