    Dear Heather & Shannon, I’m so sorry to hear of your Mom’s passing. Heather, Marcia Seitzinger babysat you & my daughters Laurie Beth & Katie. We had lots of fun conversations at pick up time back in those days. Your Mom was so much fun to talk to about “mom things”. My thoughts & prayers are with you at this difficult time.

    The first time I met Becky was in California, both of our husband's were in the Marine Corp. We immediately clung to each other both of us desperate for some sense of family so far away from home. She was the most caring person and took me right under her wing. I loved the time that we spent together. We stayed in touch over the years with a couple of visits to each others homes and phone calls. Everytime we spoke it was like no time had passed. I will miss your contagious laughter. Rest in peace my friend.

    Shannon & Heather I’ve felt like part of the family since Shannon and I first met in 7th grade. Becky was loving, kind and generous. She treated me as her own and I thought of her just the same. She opened her heart and home to me and I will always be grateful. Having 30+ years of wonderful memories will help me with her passing. I love the both of you. You both are in my thoughts.
