  1. Barbara M. Cooper

    Becky, I am constantly so very proud of you. A lot has happened since our year together in 1970 in Orinda. I just can’t get over it. I am just so very, very proud of your achievements, and of your desire to keep me informed. The girls and Bob must be so proud, too. Give me a little credit, but the majority goes to you for your intelligence and effort to make our world better. Skip feels the way I do. Lots of hugs and kisses to you


  2. Hi Becky, Rose and I are so proud of you. Law keeps our country Safe and Strong and you are an outstanding example of the Law group that accomplishes just that. Your contribution to the Law Profession is exceptional and recognition, such as this, you so well deserve. We Salute you!! With our Love and Blessings, Lynn and Rose
