So sorry for your loss Eric and the entire Beck family. I loved meeting your mom and dad and cleaning for them with my sister rhonda.
Mae was super sweet and I loved hearing about the family.

Sorry to hear about your mother. I have many fond memories of your mom whenever we ended up at your house, she always made everyone feel welcome. We will not be able to attend her service due to a previous commitment out of town. Thinking of you Bryon and Rae and your entire family at this time of loss.

My heart goes out to the Beck family during this time. You’re in my thoughts and prayers. I enjoyed taking care of Mae. In that short time I got to know her and always told me she done met her match and I became her nutty friend! She will be forever missed but I’ll never forget her and her sense of humor.

Aunt Mae and Uncle Dale were two of my very favorite people. I remember going to grandpa and grandmas and always needing to sleep in their camper. I would wiggle my way in between them to get the most lovin I could. They both will be incredible missed. I bet they are playing cards right now with my grandparents in heaven. I can only imagine the reunion they all had in heaven. Until we meet again.
