We are so sorry for your loss. Praying that God will give you peace and comfort during this difficult time. Did not know your mom very well, but I felt connected to her through facebook and I know I would have loved to have known her better.

To Mrs.Beasley

You leave me with wonderful memories of my childhood . Hot days spent outside playing in the water or board games in the garage and you taught me a thing or two about Yahtzee.I will forever cherish every memory.

Love always ,
