    Becky, rest in peace and enjoy your reunion with Hoover, Sandy, Louise, Fran and other family members who have gone before you.
    Although we know that Becky is now at peace and each of us is sad at the loss, we must not forget… that love lives longer than grief and when someone you love becomes a memory, that memory becomes a treasure.
    To each member of the family, we know that words alone cannot take away your grief, but hope our caring thoughts and sincere concern will bring your heart some relief. Hugs and love, Sandi and Robert

    Maw Maw, I am so blessed that I was able to know you for the short time that I did. I will always remember the days I would come by on Wednesdays (when I didn’t work) and we would play Guess Who, cards, and just get to know you for the amazing strong women you were. I feel lucky to have witnessed such love and devotion that Patrick had for you. It is truly beautiful what you both had and I will never forget that. It is my hope that one day my children have even half as close as the relationship you had with Patrick. I love you so much maw maw and you will always be not only piece of Patrick’s heart but also now mine. ❤️

    You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers. It’s difficult to know what to say that will offer comfort at a time like this. With faith we know that she is in God’s place, without pain and suffering. However, that does not make up for how much we miss our loved one here on earth. Over time memories of your time together will give you comfort. Again, we will keep you in our prayers.
    Love, Margaret & Stuart

    Sending prayers and words of comfort to the Bowling family at the passing of your Mother Becky. My family met your parents in 1994 when we moved in to a house across the street in Holleybrooke. They took to my 3 daughters like adopted grandparents. They were wonderful individuals but even greater as a couple. Bo now has Becky to help guard over their loved ones and they are both in the loving arms of our Father.

    Becky I will always remember you as a fine christian women, who I immediately grew very close to from the moment we first met at Spotsylvania Baptist Church. I remember you always speaking of your family and your great love for them all also how proud you were when you spoke of them. We will miss you and our prayers go out to your family. But as much as you will be missed we know heaven as truly gained an angel. Your family in CHRIST James & Cindy
