  • My sister, my friend, my advisor. A person who always listened to my rambling. I will miss her immensely! Beck loved her family like no other. Holidays were always so important to her and she would welcome anyone who didn’t have a place to go to our gatherings. She was a selfless, wonderful caregiver and nurse . My life will never be the same without her. I’m sad she is no longer with us but I know she is not suffering any longer. May the Lord comfort those who miss her as well.

    • Shirley and Lloyd: It is a sad time losing a child at any age. I know what you are thinking; “parents are supposed to go before their kids.” Rev Robert Schuller once said on TV, “God is good, life is unfair.” Blessings and peace for you all. Bob Cassity, HR MedCentral Hospital.

  • Shirley and Lloyd, Michelle, Kenny and all the family, may you rest in God’s loving assurances, comfort and strength. I give you my deepest sympathy at the loss of Beck.

  • We’re not too good at knowing
    What to do or say
    Our medical knowledge is lacking
    It’s zoom… Yes,far away

    We’ll miss that gal immensely
    She was God’s angel on earth
    God’s heavenly gates are open to her
    For the peace not not found on earth

    Like a firefly,she’ll be shining
    As she continues to do God’s work
    Let her memories brighten the darkness
    As she glows like the firefly on earth

    We love you little”fireFly”
