Becky was such a dear, sweet and loving lady. I remember
our last conversation. Even through her illness, she was
funny and full of love. Many times through the years I
have had the great pleasure of laughter and wonderful
conversation with Becky! I love you and will miss you!
Becky brought such happiness to others and there is a
special place in heaven for her! Take care my friend!
You will be so missed!!

"Dear Ones" : I do not remember when I first met Becky but she always sent me a birthday card. Becky was a compassionate person who embraced all of life and enjoyed a wonderful family. Becky would not approve of any of her "Dear Ones" grieving. A warm salute to Becky Hall, our friend. It is all very impermanent. Steven

Chuck Estes, '64 knew Becky since early grade school, I believe. He always had a soft spot in his heart for her, like many guys her age. Many was the time he laughed and chuckled when he told about the '64 reunion when he had a little too much to drink. Becky passed by and he grabbed her and gave her a big, juicy smacker. Just one! She laughed and continued on her way, and Chuck laughed like a coyote! She was one of his lifelong best friends, up to the days before he died. Everyone loved Becky. In recent years, Chuck, Paul Sumner and Frank Vernazzaro would sometimes meet on Friday afternoon at Steamer's on Commonwealth, and Becky would stop by on a break from the bank. They were a jolly bunch of pals.

It was an honor to meet and spend some time with this lovely lady. She was so
full of life and truly cared for her family and friends, especially those from her
school days. I was fortunate to attend the last '64 class reunion and to talk
briefly with her. She truly made it "come to life". Her hard work brought so much to those who knew her. She will be missed....

We will all miss Becky. She contributed so much to our class and was the "glue" that kept many of us connected. We can all pay tribute to Becky by supporting the American Cancer Society and pray for an end of this horrible disease that took her from us so soon.

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you and yours.......Becky is smiling down
on us all!
