To the family:
I just learned of Ms Bea’s passing, so sad to hear. She was always one of my favorite people. I regret being unable to visit with her. I think we first met when her father died then she lost her brother and mother. She was a fine person always sweet and kind, wanting to take care of you all. My sincere sympathy to the family. I know she will be greatly missed. Judy McPeters
