My thoughts are with your family during this difficult time.,I visited Bea several times as part of the New Albany Methodist Church Calling and Caring team. She was always so kind and such a interesting person to talk to. One thing that always stood out was how much she loved her family.. always sharing pictures of her children and grandchildren with pride. And almost every time I visited one of you had either just been there or were on your way. Such a loving family. Her stories of her days on the farm showed this was clearly a very happy time in her life! I just wanted you to know how much I enjoyed my brief time with your mom and know that she is now resting in peace and pain free. In sympathy, Susie Banchefsky, NAMC

I'm very sorry to hear of your loss. I'm also sorry that I've lost track of your family. Some of my happiest memories were spent with the Smith's. Losing Mom is the worst.
Love to you all,
Jack

Hi Smith Family, We were so sorry to learn of your loss. We have so many fond memories of each of you beginning when we arrived at the Attica EUB Church the summer of 1966. Your Mom was such a great cook and an elegant lady. She gave me many cooking tips. May God comfort each of you.
