My friend, Becky...

I am sad to write my friend Becky Kimbell passed away this morning around 6 am. She leaves a husband, James, and three kiddos, Owen (9), Bailey (5), & Nathan (3). She has a loving and close family...her mom and dad and sister, Tammy. She was extremely, extremely close with her family.

It is hard to grasp losing such a close friend. We worked together for eight long years. Many of those years we kept each other sane both professionally and personally. We have laughed and we have cried and we have talked each other off our ledges...and I am going to miss her something bad.

My mind cannot "get around" the thought of her kids not knowing how crazy she was about them. She loved them fiercely.

I know that Becky is in heaven. We talked a lot about church and spiritual matters. She once called me her "spiritual adviser" lol. That made me laugh. She is in the presence of her Savior and I know she is in a better place. I know that she is keeping my little one close and taking care of him/her until I get there. That gives me a little comfort.

Please pray for Becky's family. Her husband was laid off from his job this summer and her kids lose insurance at the end of the month (per her sister, Tammy). They will be in dire need of funds in the coming months. If you feel lead to help this family, memorial checks can be sent to Watson Funeral Home at 3201 S. Webb Road, Wichita, KS 67210. Please make the checks to the Kimbell Children's Fund.

Her funeral is on Tuesday, October 6th.

Beck, I miss you so much. I know you are singing "Wish you were here" to me...take care of my little one until I am up there. You were one of my closest friends and kept me sane. I miss you. I know you are at peace now.
