[TX] Deputy Fields and Becky were loved by all.

Collin County Sheriff's Deputy Richard "Dickie" Fields and his wife Rebecca "Becky" Royall Fields died in a fire at their home yesterday. The state fire marshal's office said that the cause of the fire was possibly lightning.

Deputy Fields:
..."I came from an abusive, alcoholic home... When the police came to deal with my father, they always allowed him to keep whatever respect he had left. They inspired me to want to go into law enforcement. Law officers have always been my heroes." [LINK]

The news articles focus on Richard but I know those who lost them feel the grief for and absence of both.

From the Collin County Deputies Association

    Hi, I am just now learning of my dear friends Dickie and Beckie fields death. I am shocked as I lost touch with them. I searched over the years and knew he was a sheriff. I met them in 1984 when I moved to Texas from NY. I worked with Dickie in Dallas at SMITHCO engineering. We became best friends almost instantly.
    Dickie invited me to dinner at the house and when I sat down to meet his wife Beckie, he went off to take a shower. She immediately went straight to the point... So what religion do you follow? Then Dickie yelled from the bathroom; "Beckie will you leave Joe alone! You just met him! ". From that point on we were best friends.
    I will never forget them both. I loved how much of a 'little devil' Jeremy was with his dimples. Love them all dearly and it will be a while before I get over the shock of knowing they are gone from this world and sitting with God.
