This was read at her funeral.

The relationship between Beckie and Shirley, as Shirley would say it is illustrated by a story: In Spring of 1917, while they were dancing at a High School Prom, the seniors were being given their class pins. Shirley had just received his pin and Beckie told him to give it to her. Shirley unknowingly asked: Why do you want my pin." Beckie answered with out hesitation: What's mine is my own and what is yours is mine, too." It has been like that ever since.
