Visit Rebekah's Page to get updates, read messages and send messages to Rebekah and her family through comments. This is a public "diary" of a family whose little girl started a battle with inoperable cancer in April 2005. In December 2007 our house burned down. And in September 2009 Mommy was diagnosed with a terminal disease (a genetic form of ALS) that took her to Heaven in July, 2011, leaving Daddy and two young girls to make it on their own. Over several years of ups and downs, you will get into our hearts, minds and souls as we share joys and sorrows. It can sometimes be very difficult to read. We hope it is also uplifting. Please find joy in what you read here.

I regret that I am out of town and will not be able to attend. Frances was a wonderful wife and mother. You have all been in my prayers as you start this new chapter of your lives. May you treasure all the memories old and new. I know she will be watching over all of you.
Sincerely, Diane K

Dear Scott and Rebekah and Sarah, I am so sorry that I will not be able to attend the service for Frances and mommy. I will be walking for the Brain Tumor Society in memory of my brother-in-law who passed away last year. You will be in my thoughts and prayers, as always. May you find comfort and peace in the precious memories of yours and others.
With sincerity and sympathy,
Bev Z.

We wish we shared more memories...but you know why you will always *always* be extra special to us. Always.
Hearts hurting for you as you prepare for this, but we know it will be a day to celebrate Frances...her life...her love for the Lord...all the beauty and joy that she shared with so many.
