I was saddened to hear of Becky's death. I have such fond memories of our joint trip to Nicaragua with Covenant CRC. She had an infectious sense of humor and the joy just bubbled up out of her. Praying for her family as they will surely miss her dearly. Praying for the peace and comfort that only God can give.
