Dear Chris,

I liked your mom so very much. I often admired the closeness of your relationship with her, as I think a bond like yours is not something that everyone is able to experience with a parent. I am so sorry to hear of her passing, particularly because of the special love you and she shared. I believe that she is no longer in pain, and that someday you will be reunited. I pray that she is viewing a beautiful sunset right now, and that she is relishing a Hawaiian breeze. Rebecca, you will be missed!

"My angel, my all, my other self ... If we could be united, we would feel this pain no longer. ...Soon, we shall live together, and what a life it will be. I have to see you.... However much you love me, I love you more."

You know, when we saw this, it was one of many bonding experiences that joined our souls forever. I showed another side of this at your memorial.

I don't know what to do without you.

The world has not seen a more dedicated mother and maternal figure for her son and for others who've been touched by the warmth of Rebecca's love.

I remember hanging out with Becky in 1973-74 at Overlake. Going on errands with her and eating top ramen for the first time at her house! Her smile was infectious and her eyes sparkled.

I love this photo; it captures so many aspects of her personality--colorful, warm, funny, a bit bohemian. In the early years, she was a delight as a student; and she proved to be a loyal and valued friend. I will miss her so very much.

I will always treasure my memories of Rebecca from our friendship over the years. She was indeed a light and helped so many people get in touch with their own light. She was a truly beautiful woman inside and out and I feel lucky to have known her. I am sad for the loss of a dear friend but happy that she will live on in my heart forever.

Rebecca radiated an inner light that you simply wanted to be around. My last visit with Rebecca was a few years ago, but I remember thinking, "I hope that someday I can be like her." Rebecca's ability to make you feel special, like you were the only one in the room she wanted to talk to, was truly an amazing quality. I hope that I will be able to share that quality with others someday.
