She is one of my beautiful granddaughters. I LOVE HER SO VERY MUCH!! I pray for her mother and each of her brothers and sisters that God will comfort them in this great tradgedy. She was a beautiful, loving and caring person who will greatly be missed by me and each of our family. We now place her in the arms of our All Knowing Loving God!

I will continue to wear it each day and pray my rosary for you and each of our beautiful family. Love you forever, Grandma xo

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.
