Becky was the young age of 31 when she passed away in 2004. She was born with a very rare lung disease, and unfortunately it took her too early from all of us. She was diagnosed with the disease at a very young age and my mother was told she wouldn't even live to see 10 years old, but she always defied the odds. We never really thought she would pass, she was so inspirational and amazing to all of us.
Becky was also told she would never be able to have children, but was blessed with two wonderful children, Corey and Ashley. Those kids were her life, and she was a wonderful mother. I look at her kids now and know she would truly be proud of the young adults they have become...and it is because of her they are who they are today.
Becky suffered for many years, trying to hold on for her two beautiful children. When she passed away I knew she was finally at peace and no longer suffering from excruciating physical pain. I had never seen so many people at a funeral before, it made me realize how she had touched so many peoples lives over the years. I was honored to speak about her at her funeral to share my wonderful stories and memories of her. They are things I will cherish in my life forever.
I will always miss her, but have fond memories of her. Losing her was by far the hardest thing I have ever had to go through in my life. I find comfort in knowing she is pain free and that I know that she is always with me. I want to do all I can to keep her memory alive and raise awareness for others.
