    Dear Cornelius Family,

    I was so sorry to hear about Becky. I was unaware that she was going through this. My thoughts and Prayers are with all of you and especially to her boys.. I remember seeing them when they were just toddlers and so was mine. She loved them very much and it showed on her face when she looked at them. May God grant all of you peace knowing that you will be united with her once again. Love…. Royce

    Peace Be With You all during this very difficult time for everyone. I am sorry that I have to fly out of town. It is hard to understand why things happen sometimes, thus we must trust in God’s will for us all.

    I write with a heavy heart. I don’t think anyone, except those who also experienced our world cruise in 2009, will ever understand the ability of humans to make lasting relationships in only 107 days. I treasure everyone of those 107 days that I spent with Becky. We shared the good, the bad and everything in between. We laughed and yes we also shed a few tears. But in the end I knew I had met a soul mate, someone who no matter when or where I could find and it would be like it was only yesterday when we had last met.
    I am blessed to move forward with amazing memories and still have her mother Nancy and her sister Amy in my life – all because Becky was accepting and open.
    Love and hugs to all the Cornelius and Henning family

    My sympathy to anyone who never had the pleasure to meet her. To her family…You are the lucky ones who had her love and shared her unique spirit for 52 years. Although our friendship was cut short, it will be treasured for a lifetime. Remember her strength and ask her in frequent prayers to share that courage with us now.

  14. Loriann Patterson

    I was so saddened to read of Becky’s passing. I worked with Becky years ago and she was always so kind to me. I remember her homemade candy at Christmas. Becky spoke of her boys all the time, as well as her siblings. She always had a funny story to tell. My deepest sympathy to all of you.

  15. Marilyn Suarez

    Kane and I were so shocked and saddened by the news of Becky’s passing. We have vivid memories of her beautiful smile and her love of life. Such a sweet soul gone too soon. Our deepest sympathy to her beloved sons, mother, brothers and sisters and entire family in this time of great loss. Marilyn

  16. Gary Cummings

    Reflecting on over a week now since Becky left this world, it still makes me overwhelmingly sad.

    I remember Becky from about age 5 and how as children she was always there with the Cornelius clan and a big part of so many wonderful memories we have. (It was great to see Bill and Amy and Mrs. C and reminding each other of the many funny stories from our childhood.)

    Then on and off I would see Becky and talk to her over the years, on into our adult lives. Becky would always make me smile and laugh.
    She did not seem to have an unkind bone in her body. Always pleasant & thoughtful.

    I am particularly grieved by the fact that she must have experienced pain during her illness, but as Bill told me, she never complained. That just sounds like the Becky I remember.

    Surely my sadness can’t compare to that of her Mom, sibs and kids, as well as others of you who were much closer to her than me. My deepest heartfelt sympathy to you all.

    We can all experience lasting peace however, knowing Becky has no more pain or sorrow for she is in the arms of the great comforter. What’s more, we can all be sure that we will see her again because of our great eternal hope in Jesus Christ, the Lord of hosts, who cares for each of
    us, and who always comforts us in all of our sorrows.
