Brad we are so sorry to learn of Becky’s death. We saw it on Nancy Taylor’s obituary today. We have been missing her and her pies. We loved to see you and her at our luncheons on Saturdays. We were excited to see where we would go next. We really miss those get togethers. RIP Becky dear, we love and miss you.
Always my friend. Love you Becky. See you soon. I know you are beautiful with your wings.❤
What a beautiful friend and now a heavenly angel. See you soon Becky.

Praying for the family. She was one of the sweetest women you could ever meet. I worked with her at the drug store for a long time and I really enjoyed working with her. Sleep in peace sweet angel.
Sorry for your loss, I met Becky when I managed the old Hardee’s in Scotland Neck. & I often went to Rite-Aid. Always a smile & very helpful.
Mrs. BECKY was always so nice and would great you with a smile. Such a wonderful person and could make the best pies. Scotland Neck has lost a real treasure.
Allow me to express my deepest condolences to the family. Mrs. Martin will be sorely missed. Her sweet smile and kind words were always a great comfort to anyone who met her. She would always ask me how I was and never had a complaint about her own circumstance. She was more worried about me going to church than her own problems. Never have I met a kinder soul.
Becky was a sweet and lovable lady you will be truly missed
Brad I am sorry to hear about your mom, she was a sweet lady. I enjoyed working with her at Popes Dollar Store , she always try to help out while I was learning everything. I have always loved talking to her and loved her, she will be missed. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
