Rebecca's birthday

This past Monday (May 7th) would have been Rebecca's 21st birthday. Sunday night, her parents took several of us out to dinner for her birthday. We went to one of her favorite restaurants. It was the same restaurant that I went to for my birthday this year when Rebecca got to go with us! I love these people so much. It was such a blessing to be able to celebrate with the people who were the closest to her. 

All of us
Birthday confetti
They said her name on them!
After we ate, her mom gave each of us a little box. We opened them and found the most beautiful bracelets I've ever seen. 

There's an angel to represent Rebecca, one that says "Faith" for Rebecca's faith and ours, a heart with "Rebecca" on one side and our initial on the other (so mine has a V), a bead with purple since that was her favorite color, and a heart that says "Forever Friends" since we will be friends forever in Heaven. 

We decided that each year on Rebecca's birthday, we're going to add a new charm to it. 

On Rebecca's actual birthday (Monday), three of us celebrated together. We took flowers to the cemetery with Rebecca's mom. Then we got the first snow cones of the year because those were Rebecca's favorite. Every Sunday afternoon we would get snow cones together. 

Here's a picture of the three of us that celebrated her birthday together Monday. This was taken after Rebecca's funeral with the purple roses we got from the flowers that were with the casket.

Happy 21st birthday in Heaven Becca! I can only imagine how great your birthday was with Jesus.
