Becky was like a mother to me after the death of my mother Mary Ann Purgason Carter, I was 3, as stated she was a mother to us all. I shall miss her so much, her caring, listening to our woes, her ability to laugh at things.Her passing will make our whole family that much sadder without her motherly advice. Personally her cooking advice was one I counted on except for chocolate pies which we made a total mess of! :sparkling_heart:

Becky was a sweet woman with a big heart and a lovely smile. As family, we were always close and enjoyed family get-togethers when I was young. She will be greatly missed but Heaven has gained a beautiful angel! RIP Becky. <3
