Oh, Becky, you left too early! I sure do miss our times at work together. The time you made me a Playboy Bunny cake for my birthday. And all the mischief we'd get into at work! Just the thought of you makes me smile. I am sure going to miss you. Knowing you, the first thing you'll do when you get to heaven is to spring clean...! I am richer for having known you! My prayers are with Denny and your family as they (we) grieve your passing! Say hi to Doug Mull for me will ya?
