I am so sorry to hear about Rebecca's passing. She was one of the sweetest people I have ever known. She was always so kind, quick with a smile and laughter, and she completely adored her husband. I am proud and honored to be able to call her my friend. My deepest sympathy goes out to her entire family and especially her husband and her beloved dog. This world is not as nice as it was while Rebecca walked among us but those of us who knew her have been so blessed to have had her for a while. For my unassuming, sweet friend, will be missed so much than you know and by so many more people than you realized.
