thinking of you  / Brandi

I miss you when something really good happens, because you're the one I want to share it with.

I miss you when something is troubling me, because you're the only one who understands me so well.

I miss you when I laugh and cry, because I know that you're the one makes my laughter grow and my tears disappear.

I miss you all the time!!!!!

Yet another day with out you!  / Heather Linseman (Cousin (BFF) )

So, here it is, another day, another month, a year has gone by since he took you from us! And still, not a day goes by that you are not on my mind all day! The kids are on my mind as well. So much has changed! Without you, values and strengths have been torn to pieces! I fear, we couldn't save you when you were here, now, have we let you down again? Please give us the strength to be half the mentor and women you were, so we can be sure your values, and strengths live on well after we are all gone!

Love and Miss You Always

Missing you  / Brandi Green

The sun came up this morning;

 It wasn't very bright.

My dark mood casts a shadow;

It's hard to see the light.

We all had just one BECKY...

And, now that her life on earth is done,

The emptiness and loss we feel

Make it hard to see the sun.

Tomorrow is a new day;

May the pain and sadness lighten.

We will remember all her love,

And may the sky brighten.

Gone is not forgotten;

Her love remains behind;

She's traveled in a new direction -

Love knows no space or time.

We will always love her

She will care for us from above

She will send us starlight and rainbows

To remind us of her Love.

Becky you were the Best Friend i have ever had, you were my rock when i felt weak,my insperation when i felt empty.I offten think of the last time i helped you move.....I rack my brain woundering way i didnt say more,what more should i have said..what could i have done different To stop that day from coming.It rips me apart inside everyday...seeing the kids without you..breaks me, it is so hard to hide the tears and anger i feel when i am around them.I met them at the cemetery yesterday,we walked to your grave...i dont know if they know how many times i have been there and cried,but i hope they know that i love them and your family as if they were my own!!!I know there world was crushed, as was mine.I pray that justice would be served in a much faster time!!!I love and miss you!!!  



My thoughts are with you and your family today...  / Dawn Vanderhyde (None-heard her story through Michelle )

Hi Becky,

You don't know me and I don't know you but I met your sister Michelle and your kids at a camp this summer.  Your story has crossed my mind since I have heard your story.  My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family always but especially this week.  I too lost a loved one within the year but not due to such a tragic situation.  May you rest in peace and know that your family misses you dearly.


on the anniversary of Rebecca's passing  / Hossein Parsian (none)
One year ago today, an incomprehensible act took you away from your family, friends,... .Perhaps it was God's will to take you there SO EARLY-- HE is known to have been doing this often. Whatever it is, I believe you are now in heaven and others there are benefitting from your kindness and generosity you were known here for. You were a socially-loved person here on earth and you will be an angel to the eyes of people your are now with in heaven. God bless you and rest in peace.

To My Big Sister  / Maria (Pita) Salinas (Friend)
Wow I don't know what to say. So many things going on I don't know if I'm coming or going. I wanted to do something nice for you Becky because you were like a Big Sister to me. I know that we didn't get to see eachother much, but when we bumped into eachother at Beecher High or at Northgate it was always the best conversation ever! We didn't see eachother on holidays now I wish that were different. As you might know with the help of your family and friends, my Christmas Wish came true! As I am crying writing this, we have the money to pay for your headstone, what a blessing! I can't believe it all the hard work that people put into making this a reality! Becky I Love You and it breaks my heart because I never got the chance to tell you that. Saturday December 27th is a day that God asked his angel to come home. Also that is the day my parents will celebrate their 28th wedding anniversary. Rebecca Torres We All Love You and will be missed by all!
So it's been almost a year  / Michelle Miller (Sister)
It's been almost a year and some people says it still doesn't seem real.  I think it feels horribly real.  Christmas day is fast aproaching.  This year has been really hard with losing you.  I know this was one of your favorite times of year Beck.  I don't do it like you did, noone ever could.  You did tell me though, that Christmas was at my house this year.  It was one of the last things you ever said to me.  I want you to know I am having Christmas at my house.  We will be missing a huge part of our family and it does break my heart.  I really don't know how this will all play out.  We will make the best of it and I will try to cherrish the family that will be with us, as that is what Christmas is really about.  We will be thinking also of the people who can't be with us.  I do know you liked presents too (mostly giving them) but I also know from the way we were raised and the way you led your life that family was the most important thing.  I hold that in my heart.  I have to admit I am having a really hard time getting into the "Christmas Spirit".  Carla is singing this Sunday at church too. That I am looking forward too.  I know you would have been there and who knows maybe you will be there anyway.  I know I have no control over our family staying together now but my holiday wish is that we do.   I don't know how you did it.  You were always able to present things in a way that people listened to you.  I always admired that about you.  I guess i just don't know how to do that.   I miss you, I love you and you will always be in my heart and on my mind.  I am doing my best to carry-on and to fullfill your wishes, I just wish I wasn't falling so short sis. I miss you, I love you and you will always be in my heart and on my mind.
iN class thinking of you....  / Angie Morales (niece)
     Hey aunt Becky......

-Rigt now im in class..lol. i was just thinking about you. Yes i kno i'm supposed to be doing my work but I just can't seam to get you off of my mind. I catch myself thinking about you very often. I miss you so much. I wish you were here with me. It feels so weird getting my college papers ready without you. I always figured that you were always going to be the one to help me out with college stuff, instead I have to ask my counciler to help me fill out my financial aid papers. The other day I caught myself getting ready to tell my mom that I wanted to go see you but then i thought and stoped myself.  I really do wish you were here with me. Lately things have been so hard. I try my hardest to keep myself together but with graduation coming up and preparing for college, lets just say its getting a little overwhelming without someone there to give you a helping hand. A lot of the time I just wish you were here to comfort me like you always have done. Im growing up & right now your advice is something that I really need to hear. Well I guess I should get back to doing my school work..



I can't get over it.....  / Candice ("adopted" daughter )

      I am so angry Becky, and the worst part is I dont even know who to be angry at anymore. There is just so much I wish you were here for, so much I want to say to you. I know I can always talk to you, and some how I get the feeling you hear me, even the times when I dont want you to, but it's not the same without you here. Its like sending a letter but never getting a response. I'm left with all this doubt wondering what your reply would have been all the times I have talked to you since you left us. I'm angry at God because somehow it just seems like he could have prevented this from happening to such a good person. I'm mad at myself for all the times us kids made you feel underappreciated. I'm mad at Rick because he took you away. I'm mad at the court system for protecting him. I'm filled with all this anger, yet it doesnt even matter because there is no one for me to take it out on.

     I drove your car to homecomming the other day and it broke my heart when I realized that I can't show you my drivers liscence and hear you tell me how goofy the picture is. I was so sad that you werent with me and helica while we got ready for the dance, or that you wouldnt be there to insist that we take 100000000 pictures.

     I guess I've said all this to say that I wish you were here, with all my heart I just wish you were still here to talk to and get advice from. I don't think there will ever come a time when I think of you and i dont get a little down. "I miss you" can't even cut it at this point.

I miss you  / Angela Morales (niece)

   I just wanted to say that I miss you so much andthat theres not a day that does by that I don't think about you. I try my hardest to keep myself together but at times I can't help but to break down and cry. I talk to Angelica and Ricky a lot. It seams like mine and Angelicas relationship has gotten a lot better since the incident happened. Oh yeah another thing, I finally got my license. YAY!. I just wish you were here to celebrate stuff with me like you use to. Also graduation is coming up in January, I can't wait to start college. Well I guess thats it for now until next time. I love you and miss you lots aunt Becky.....


I MISS YOU  / Paul Torres Torres (cousin)
You are still gone  / Michelle Miller (Little Sis )
This whole thing has been so hard to accept for all of us.  You were a wonderful sister, mom & friend to many people.  I feel like I had you here....at my house....away from all that & I didn't do enough to let you know that you could stay or that I could help more or I didn't say tht magic little phrase that would have set off a light bulb in your head so you would know it was not ok to go back.  I miss you and I play the conversations in my head again and again.  I have always believed things happen for  reason but I can't help but think this one just wasn't meant to be.  Sometimes when I think of that day it feels like someone tore my heart out and and is just playing with it, twisting ad sqeezing it until it hurts so bad I can hardley breathe. I know you can't live in the could have, should have,  would have world but I sure visit it from time to time. I keep thinking of Christmas day and what you said to me that day.  I wonder if we were not interuppted what else I may have been able to say to you or what else you might have said to me.  I play it again and again in my head but when I am done.....you are still gone.  I miss you so much and I love you.  
4th of July  / Michelle Miller (Sister)

So we went up North this weekend for the 4th of July.  We took Carla with us.  Man, Beck she would have had you cracking up just like she did all of us.  She kept telling us that she had a "sound effect" for so and so.  She went through a bunch of impressions and finally she said "I have a Becky sound effect" and we all said well go ahead.  She says "Carla Ann stop messing with my hair!"  I laughed so hard.  It would have been really nice to have you there.  I love you and miss you everyday.


Always missing you!  / Heather Linseman (Cousin)

So, today is just the same as any other day! I can't stop missing you!
A million questions run through my head, all left unanswered!
I know you are in a much better place, and HE can't hurt you ever again!
But why in the first place?
Why is he left to carry on, making friends, seeing the sunlight, visiting your kids, watching tv, eating, breathing?
Then when he is faced by us in court, he is too much of a coward to speak. Just that same smug look on his face, like he is GOD!
One day I know, he will meet his maker, and it won't be good.
But what about those of us who are left behind, with broken hearts, and broken minds?
How is it Justice for Becky, when thier is a 3 month period between court dates, a period where we have started to heal, and then we have to start fresh, in court, again!  Where is the Justice in that? 

I Miss You and Love You


to the family of Rebecca Ruth Burden  / Hossein Parsian (none)

As someone who one day and haphazardly crossed over Becky' memorial site and felt very sorry for her , I want to express my condolences to her family .

Although I never knew or met her but by what I have seen , she must have been loved and respected by many family,relatives and community people .

I hope you people will hold up to the unfortunate event happening in your lives . All you can do now is to take care of her children , cherish her and follow her example of social goodness and kindness she was known for . God bless her .

Missing You  / Heather Linseman (Cousin)

So I have been on here several times, typed something and then deleted it, cuz I didn't want to hurt anyone's feelings.  Then the more I think of these things the more I hurt...So maybe if I type it and  post it I will feel better!  ha look at me!  Still waiting for you to tell me to do it, or I better not!  lol 

Beck, I miss you more then I ever thought I could miss another women.  All my life we have been close like sisters, the true meaning of BFF!  With every monumental moment of my life you were standing next to me, and vise versa.  I knew if I needed someone to lean on you would be there, and I was always here for you.  So much is going on right now, and all I want to do is have you here with me.  Bill's band is opening up for Bret Michaels of Poison, oh how we loved the 80's.  I am going to start college soon, so I can find a job I can do even when I am old!

I have so much that I want to tell you, but he took that away from all of us.  Oh but you would be proud of me in court, I haven't jumped over the petition  to choke him!   No to say I didn't want to, but jail scares me!  lol  See I can control myself if needed!  lol 

Your little Nick misses you too.  He turned 4 last month, wow can you believe it, he is 4.  So at his party, I start dishing out cake and ice cream.  And it hit me all at once, you were not next to me like usual helping with the ice cream.  I said this isn't right, and I looked up at Angel, and she said I know, I know.  She new before I could say it what I was thinking.  A few weeks ago Nick told me that he misses you, and that you like to play spongebob legos with him.  Beck, you played with his new spongebob legos with him on December 1, 2007 when you were here for Williams birthday party, even as little as he is, he remembers the last time he seen you, and what you and him did! 

Hmm  blows my mind, that Rick was and still is so selfish that he took you from your children and all the others who loved you so very much! 

Our lives were changed because of your love and compasion. 

And I will not let your memory be forgotten! 

Love you Always, Heather


Beck / Krystle Perry (Friend)

Becky is a beautiful and inspiring person. Not a day goes by without my thinking of her.  I worked with Becky at Talecris Plasma Resources.  Everyday was full of laughter and fun with her.  She was an amazing friend, a devoted and proud mother, faithful wife, and so so much more.  She is truely missed, but her spirit lives on with us still.  My thoughts and love to the family. 


I love you Beck!


Mother's Day  / Michelle Miller (Sister)
You are my sister, so you don't usually cross my mind on Mother's Day.  This Mother's Day is very different.  I find you & your children have been on my mind all day.  I know how much I miss you & I can only imagine how difficult this all has been on them.  Ironically, I think you are the only one who could have conforted them today.  You are so missed and so loved.  I wish I could hear that laugh or see one of your smiles.  I  wish none of this had ever happend.
