    My Aunt Becky was one of a kind. She was funny, lighthearted, and a great role model. I enjoyed spending summers in South Carolina especially going over her house and having dinner and helping in the garden. I’ll never forget her and her smile and laugh. I hope she rests in peace with my granny and papa!

    Becky Ann was the granddaughter of Alonzo Woods, whose family were the original homesteaders of Fort Christmas, Florida. Growing up, she and I spent many days and nights at “the camp” there, giggling by the campfire and by the light of a kerosene lantern, listening to the old timers (aka pioneers) talking about deer hunts and other tales of adventures. The love, laughter and memories formed a bond between she and I that lasted through our lifetime. Forever and always, in life and in death, our spirits are joined. God bless all of us who now have to live with the challenge of not having her loving ways and smile to greet us whenever we need her, or to hear her special laughter. Love to her family and I know she would want them to not be sad. She would want them to hold their memories of her close to their hearts, just as I do.
