Becky was a kind and loving woman who I'm sure will be greatly missed.  She has gone to be with the Angels and God only takes the best.  Dick was waiting for her and now they can be together through infinity.

Dear Richwood family,
I had planned to come down there for the service, but woke up with "urges". Lot of fond memories. Becky and family lived across the back alley from my grandparents. We were all close. I spent several summers in Richwood to play ball with Dick on the Richwood team. One of my favorite memories was when her older brother convinced me and Dick to go fishing in the old cistern behind the Southard house. Best joke ever. Everyone take care and live a good life. As Albert the alligator said, "it ain't no how permanent". Love to all.

To Becky's family:  I was sorry to learn of Becky's death.  She was the sister to a good friend of mine, Shirley Ketzler.  It was always fun at the Southard home with Kelly and Virginia.  Becky used to attend church at the Church of Christ with us and was a "shot" lady at Dr. Drake's office.  She loved her family and I am sure you will miss her very much.  You have our sympathy.
