In Gods arms..


 This online memorial was created in loving memory of Becky Vidmosko, whose life story is told throughout this memorial website.

Becky is my youngest child and my only daughter. She has 4 older brothers - Tim, Terry, Todd and Chris. She didn`t have much contact with her biological father in the last few years of her life, but she was extremely close to my husband whom she called dad. From the moment she was born, she was special & spoiled! Her brothers loved to care for her and as she got older one of them was always there to protect her. She was very much a tomboy and could hold her own with her brothers. She was stubborn, opinionated and loved to talk and shop! She was also hard-headed and had to have her way in everything. She was never afraid to speak her mind - and she made sure she was always heard! She was everything I wasn`t and I truely admire her for being such a strong woman.  


On July 5,2003, I lost my daughter,my best friend in a motor vehicle accident. Becky passed on July 4th but was not pronounced until the early morning hours of July 5th. She had suffered severe injuries and died from head trauma. We miss you baby so much! Dance with the Angels sweetheart...



Becky was such a fun-loving and giving person. She was always at the mall or playing basketball or tennis with the neighborhood guys. Oh, how she loved the boys!!!  She loved to babysit for her friends. She would have made a wonderful mom!  Of course, I can`t forget her phone- I think it was attached to her ear!  A few days after her accident, we went to the car to get her belongings. The first thing I looked for was her phone- in my mind I knew she would be upset if something happened to it. I finally found it, under the shattered glass on the floor. When I got it home, I put it on the charger and her greeting popped up. She was forever changing it- but I never expected to see this message. It said " Treat today as if there is no tomorrow" . How ironic is that????

Becky was also an organ donor. She was unable to donate any major organs because of the -internal injuries. But she was able to donate her corneas, bone and tissue. Even after her death, she was helping others. I am so proud of her for giving the gift of a better life to over 50 people. Her corneas went to 2 women who now have the gift of sight. I hope they see the world as Becky did and are enjoying all the sunrises and sunsets through her eyes.




Because I can`t be there to give you a hug and let you know how much I love you, when you are feeling down I will find my way to you. So if you feel the flutter of an angels wing brush you on your shoulder, just remember it`s a special hug from me.



My  Angel

You’ve just walked on ahead of me
And I’ve got to understand
You must release the ones you love
And let go of their hand.
I try and cope the best I can
But I’m missing you so much
If I could only see you
And once more feel your touch.
Yes, you’ve just walked on ahead of me
Don’t worry I’ll be fine
But now and then I swear I feel
Your hand slip into mine.


"For what is it to die, But to stand in the sun and melt into the wind? And when the Earth has claimed our limbs, Then we shall truly dance." --- Kahlil Gibran




 You are not forgotten loved one

Nor will you ever be

As long as life and memory last

We will miss thee.

We will miss you now

Our hearts are sore

As time goes by

We miss you more

Your loving smile

Your gentle face

No one can fill your vacant place.

Remind me Dear Lord of the things that I love and hold dear to my heart. They are just borrowed, not mine at all. Jesus only let me use them to brighten my life.


"If you know someone who has lost a child, and you're afraid to mention
them because you think you might make them sad by reminding them that
they died--you're not reminding them. They didn't forget they died. What
you're reminding them of is that you remembered that they lived, and that is a great gift." ~Elizabeth Edwards ~



When tomorrow starts without me And I'm not there to see;If the sun should rise and find your eyes All filled with tears for me,I wish so much you wouldn't cry The way you did today; While thinking of the many things We didn't get to say.

I know how much you love me As much as I love you; And each time that you think of me, I know you'll miss me too. But when tomorrow starts without me, Please try to understand, That an angel came and called my name And took me by the hand.

She said my place was ready In heaven far above; And that I'd have to leave behind, All those I dearly love. But as I turned to walk away, A tear fell from my eye; For all my life, I'd always thought I didn't want to die.

I had so much to live for, So much yet to do; It seemed almost impossible, That I was leaving you. I thought of all the yesterdays, The good ones and the bad; I thought of all the love we shared, And all the fun we had.

If I could relive yesterday Just even for awhile, I'd say goodbye and kiss you And maybe see you smile. But then I fully realized That this could never be; For emptiness and memories Would take the place of me.

And when I thought of worldly things I might miss come tomorrow; I thought of you, and when I did, My heart was filled with sorrow. But when I walked through heaven's gates I felt so much at home; When God looked down and smiled at me From His great golden throne.

He said, "This is eternity And all I've promised you; Today your life on earth is past, But here it all starts anew. I promise no tomorrow, But today will always last; And since each day's the same day, There's no longing for the past. But you have been so faithful, So trusting and so true; Though at times you did do things, You knew you shouldn't do. But you have been forgiven And now at last you're free; So won't you take my hand And share my life with me?"

So when tomorrow starts without me, Don't think we're far apart For every time you think of me, I'm right here in your heart.
