Heart is broken. My heart over-flows. I feel love, anger, sadness, confusion, hope, yet peace. A peace that surpasses all understanding and that only comes from above. My Friend, mentor, my spiritual big sister… @beckyconzelman you are home, with Jesus resting. I don’t have the right words now, not sure I ever will. At the moment I will refrain from diving in too deep to my thoughts and feelings. My trust and comfort is in the Lord and my prayers for her family – specifically Jim and the kiddos. We love you so much and miss you terribly. Matthew 11:28-29 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. @faithrxd #repost Becky's journal, Feb 18, 2019: "Father, thank you for knowing me.

How do you describe one of the most selfless, fun-loving, energetic, humble, kind, and best people to walk this earth? It’s truly impossible to explain the joy and love and goodness that @beckyconzelman brought to this world and the people in it. I’m a true believer that everything does happen for a reason. The reason for this may take a while to understand and accept, but Becky your contagious smile and spirit is glued to my soul. I will try to live each day with even 1/2 the love you did. I will try to not take one day for granted or leave an opportunity missed. I will try to show people how much they mean to me. I will continually try to be a better person because of your example. You are going to be missed beyond words, but held so tightly in our hearts forever. I love you dear friend! 💜 #livefortoday #beherenow #love #beckyconzelman

Life is to be lived. __ RIP Becky Conzleman. You are a rockstar my friend. Becky was a long time friend and supporter of many things I did. We worked together many, many times and man did she make it easy. This human being smiled at every turn and just lived life to the fullest. What an example. All too often we all fall into a seriousness about things and forget how short life can be on this turning rock. I think certain folks exemplify the joy that should be had; making a mockery of the rest of us. What an amazing dance this woman had. Becky suffered a brain aneurysm not too long ago and was not able to rebound after surgery from what I understand. She had a strong practice in her faith and part of her brain child @faithrxd lives on. Her amazing family and ideas continue on with that big smile looking down on them. 🙏🏼😞
