It is indeed our misfortune not to have met Mrs. Beasley in person, but we sure have met her in spirit in her daughter Jerri. What a gift she has been to all of us to have allowed her daughters to carry on the great life examples she placed in their hearts. Thank you!

Our heartfelt condolences to all the Beasley family on behalf of the Benjamin and Saundra Hall family!
