Curtis and Erin, your wife and mother came into my life through our years at CVTC. She delivered the medicines and I was always so happy to see her and share a few minutes of laughter and girl talk. There was never a time, no matter how hard the day and her schedule that she was in too big a hurry to talk. I’ll never forget how she would hear of another’s misfortune and say “ God love them.” She was a avid reader and designer purse and jewelry lover! There was nothing she loved more than her family. Becky left us way too soon. I will always think of her when I see a butterfly and when I look at the photos of our trips together. I’m so happy we saw Alaska together! I’ll never forget the dog sledding, cruising down Glacier Bay together, Curtis driving the Jeep through the mud puddles of Mexico, the heat of Myan Ruins or her wild dance at her daughters wedding to the tune of Pitt Bull. I thank God for placing this beautiful soul in my life. If life is a tapestry she was a bright beautiful rainbow strand. I know heaven is full of butterfly meadows and that’s where our beautiful Becky is now, watching them Flutter and exclaiming God love them. I didn’t want you to leave us so soon Becky but I know we will all be together again in those butterfly meadows of heaven. Love you forever and a day my ya ya.
