Rebecca was such a dear friend to us. We will always remember the fun times we spent with her; and the delicious pound cakes she made for us. I enjoyed working with her at Summer Breeze Senior Living. She was a wonderful Nurse and Friend. I will never forget our long lunches at Johnny Harris Restaurant; and our shopping trips. Go rest on that high mountain, where there is no more sickness or sadness…only joy and light. Please give your Doy a hug from me ! We will love and miss you both, always. May God bless and comfort Sandra, Brian and Family in the days to come. With our love and deepest sympathy, Skip and Nancy Watson North Augusta, S.C.

Sandra and family, my thoughts and prayers are with you all. Such fond memories of your Mom over the years. She always was talking about Sandra and the "girls". And later rejoiced as she was blessed with grandaughters and all the joy they brought to her. God Bless you all, Cheryl Klein
