My heart and prayers are with Rebecca’s family and friends in this difficult time. I can’t begin to imagine what you are feeling. In the words of Helen Keller “What we have once enjoyed we can never lose. All that we love deeply becomes part of us.” I pray you will remember and take with you all the joy that Becky brought to each of your lives. Like her incredible smile I pray you think of those bright times you shared with Becky.

After a long illness; I'm back in the saddle. So, I only recently found out of this tragedy. By all accounts, Rebecca(Iodine) is a trusting, warm and beautiful soul. And that's what I sensed about her.

Because she was known and loved throughout the world, condolences will likely be given a few over a long time. Thank you for renewing the book. I came here to do that today.

Expressing warm condolences to Rebecca's family. I met Rebecca online, through a handful of exchanges. She was highly popular and well-liked from what I remember. I came across an image of her and wondered after her. She passed too soon, but time is only an illusion: an illusion we'll all learn more about soon enough. Take care.
