Such a beautiful tribute from a grandmother to her grand daughter. This family is in my thoughts and prayers as they struggle to deal with this horrific loss. Hopefully the other teen receives good, nurturing care and is able to make a full recovery. Thank the homeowners who responded so quickly to comfort and care for this teen until trained responders arrive. God Bless you all

Denise - I am praying for you and the family and friends who loved Becca so much. I remember her from Everett and my favorite image of her is when I gave her 2 kittens (she said she wanted 2 because 1 would be too lonely!). God bless and keep you.
