Just got a call

From my sister this morning to tell me that one of our friends, Becky Eliot, got killed last night by a drunk driver. She is leaving 3 kids behind 1 boy and 2 girls. Her children are cousins of mine. My daughter is the same age as her middle daughter and her youngest is around the same age as my youngest. Her middle daughter and my daughter where in the same grade and always in the same class until we moved to West Virgina. She was younger then me (this will be my 7th anniversary of turning 30 this year) so sad that she had to leave us at such an early age due to a drunk driver.

Becky was one of the sweetest people I knew and she will be missed dearly. It was always nice to see her when I went to pick up mart (gas station at Karnak Y, in southern IL) she always had a smile on her face and I don't think I ever seen her mad at anyone or even say anything bad about anyone.

Please say a prayer for her family that she so suddenly left behind.

Becky you will be so dearly missed by your family and friends. We love you and will miss you dear friend of mine.
