    From across the miles, our hearts are with Becky’s family. Her kindness and good humor reached far and wide, and made a huge difference for me personally while far away from our Yellow Springs home. Thank you Becky! Wishing peace of mind and heart to Justin and family.

    I cannot properly convey the depth of emotion I feel for the whole family right now. May the love and empathy of the Yellow Springs community be shown to Justin, his son and Rebecca’s family.
