My deepest sympathy to the Edwards and Houston family. Many of my favorite childhood memories are the summers spent on Grandma Goodman’s farm with my Houston cousins. What wonderful times we had. Becky was the sweetest and always had the most beautiful smile. May her memory live on in all who loved her.
