I remember most is your family coming to Ottumwa & camping & if I remember right it was in an old bus. RIP Becky!
I was so happy for Dean and Becky when they found one another and had such a shared love that they got married. Then got to spend time together in the Big Horns getting more closely acquainted. Cancer is an evil thief robbing us of life together but the short time allows us to really cherish the times and memories we do have. Love you both and we’ll see Becky in heaven.
Our thoughts are with you all. Becky was a loving and caring person who we will miss dearly. RIP dear Becky
