  4. Dear Family,
    So sorry to hear about your loss. I have lots of memories of Rebecca, we grew up together in church and school. May the Lord be with you during this time.

  5. Dear Laura and Family,
    I am so sorry to hear about your loss. I’am passing this poem along, it’s is my favorite during times of sorrow.


    Don’t grieve for me, for now I’m free
    I’m following the path God laid for me
    I took His hand when I heard Him call
    I turned my back and left it all.
    I could not stay another day, to laugh, to love, to work or play.
    Tasks undone must stay that way
    I’ve found that peace at the close of the day.

    If parting has left a void, then fill it with remembered joy.
    A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss,
    Ah, yes, these things I too will miss.

    Be not burdened with times of sorrow
    I wish for you the sunshine of tomorrow.
    My life’s been full, I savored much
    Good friends, good times, a loved one’s touch.

    Perhaps my time seemed all to brief,
    Don’t lengthen it now with undue grief.
    Lift up your hearts and share with me,
    God wants me now, He set me free.

  6. Hey ya’ll, i’m sure you probably remember me pretty well,i lived right down from you on mile straight, rebecca and i grew up together, we were tight as two peas in a pod in junior high school and early high school before she quit. she was one of the best friends i’ve ever had and we had some great times that the memories still run through my mind all the time. i’m sorry that i somehow missed this in the paper and grateful that i ran into regina in the grocery store and got to talk to her and find out what had happened. it really taught me something, rebecca and i unfortunately for complex reasons hadn’t really ‘hung out’ in many years but when we’d ‘run into ea other’ it was as if time had stopped, we just picked up every time where we left off without skippin a beat and we kept ‘threatening’ to get together and ‘hang out’, catch up (smiles) and we somehow never got that done, we kept putting off and this has certainly taught me to try harder to live in today, don’t put off things, tomorrow may not come to say i’m sorry wished we’d done this sooner. we may not have stayed in constant contact but i loved rebecca alot and i know shes had a hard go of things for a very long time, for as much comfort as this can hopefully bring you, especially since her death was beyond tragic and senseless and far too soon, the one thing she finally has is peace and no pain/suffering of any kind, i’m grateful she has that and however extremely sorrowful that shes gone, snatched sooo young from the life she had before her yet to live and w/4 beautiful children left behind whom she absolutely worshiped, i knew her heart, they were/are her everything. i hope they will be able to hang on to precious memories of their mom, she’ll never forget them and is there watching over them and waiting with open arms by the time she sees them it’ll seem as though only a moment passed by.i’m just truly sorry i didn’t know before now. my mom, lula taylor, sends her deepest condolences as well. rebecca will be dearly missed by all of us, even though we didn’t see ea other daily, i thought of her often and the friendship she and i had i will always treasure. i’m beyond sorry for your loss and i do sincerely hope that you guys have been able to find peace and comfort during this horrible time. take care and God bless ea and every one of you, especially her children. we lost my dad in Oct ’03 and i lost my half brother in ’98, i won’t say the pain/anger you end up feeling ever completely goes away, but it lessens and becomes more bearable over time and you can cherish the memories a little more without the gut wrenching intensity as bad, and not feel the pain so unbearabley. Love,Toni Taylor Griffin and Lula Taylor.

  7. I miss you so much Rebecca but I know you are in a better place… I was in the hospital and was very I’ll when you passed and. I believe that was for a reason , I probably was to weak at the time to accept your loss. But now I’m on this computer and found that I can still send this message.. This has to be the saddest time and I’m so sorry for the family cause now your sister has come to be with you and she will be missed so much too. We do get very sad at times like this but I’m going to treasure all the memories of you both. Y’all were like my sister’s I love you and will miss you both so much. May God be with you miss Laura and all of your children your dauters left here with and grandchildren.. I know that you are 1 of the most amazing and strongest women I’ve ever known… May God bless you …. I love you and will always have you and the children in my ❤.

  8. I never got to the opportunity to meet her but I have had the blessed opportunity to grow up with her daughter Felicia and she’s been the best friend in my life ever! I wish I could’ve met you
