    Becky was married to my brother Wayne who has been deceased for about 20 years. She would always tell me how much she missed her husband. She called me about 3 weeks ago asking about my brother-in law who has cancer and my other brother who is in assisted living. She was always asking about us. Now she can see her husband that she missed so much.

    You have the deceased in one line as Rebecca “Becky” Sloan and the next line you refer to her as Lawson. Which is it?
