Dear Mary, Martha and family, We were so sorry to hear the news of Bessie's passing. What a wonderful and talented lady she was. She definitely had many talents from a fabulous knitter, amazing cook and always had a smile on her face welcoming us into her home for those great family reunions in Strafford. She had a wonderful life and a wonderful family to share it with. Sincerely Pat and Chuck Clement
