My heart is broken. Rebecca was my friend, we worked together at Babies R Us. She was a hard working kind manager. I prayed so very much for her during her illness. She never let it get her down. I always admired her strength and fight. Boy she loved her family. Just know you all have a special Angel to watch over you. Keeping you in my prayers

Rebecca and I worked together and were friends for over 15 years. I was there when she met Tim. She worked for me when she had Timmy and Lily. I was there when Tim asked her to marry him. We used to talk almost everyday and then life and work made the time between talks greater. But it didn’t make a difference how much time we missed together when we talked it was just like we spoke the day before. She was one of the greatest people I know. She never said an unkind word about anyone. She would admit at times thinking one but never said it out loud. She loved her entire family so much and always talked about everyone and how proud she was of her children. I am so deeply sorry about your loss. I love Rebecca and will miss her so much. I am sending many prayers and am giving all of you a virtual hug. ❤️🙏
