We are so sorry about Bessie. We didn't see her often, but she was always smiling, always pleasant and nice to us. She was very welcoming. I know that heaven has gained an angel because Bessie loved the Lord and showed it. She always left me with a hug. We are thinking about you all and praying for you in the days to come. We are lifting you up to God for the comfort that only He can give. We are here for you if there's anything we can do. Love from the Wilson family.

Louis and Bessie were such a blessing in witnessing to my mother and leading her to Jesus Christ before she passed in April. They've been wonderful friends to my mother and our family. Bessie will be missed, but it warms my heart to know that my mother and Bessie are together with our Savior. Our thoughts and prayers are with Louis and his family.

Bessie and I grew up together and were friends through out our elementary school years. One day I learn I had a new sister in law, what a surprise, she was also a long time friend. She was a prayer warrior for the Lord. Many times I called and ask her to help me agree in prayer for a problem. She would stop what she was doing and immediately begin to pray. RIP my dear friend. What a joy to know I will one day see you again.
