  1. I remember Becka so well and with great fondness. I found these words on the Center's affirmative prayer library. "In this time of grief, I accept comfort and peace of mind. I remember that love is eternal, and that nothing or no one can truly be lost or gone. I claim for myself that even as my heart feels heavy with a sense of loss, I am at the same time filled with awe and wonder at the power of love in my life. I trust the wisdom of the living Spirit to guide me through this time."
