To our cousins, and their families,

We are so sorry to hear of the passing of Tia Bea.

As we think of her, we are reminded of all the ways she spread her love. Though she was a tiny lady, she had a giant sized love to give.

We think of how devoted and dedicated she was to her entire family. And she was such a hard worker inside and outside the home too.

When we had our house fire, we were blessed to receive a card from her, with encouraging words, and a little money inside,-telling us to use it for what might be needed. That was Tia Bea...hearing about something, and doing what she could to help.

She surely will be missed!

Grandma I will miss you. I’m happy that you will be with Grandpa again and dad. Give them a hug from me and tell my mom I miss her. I imagine you and her will be working on flower beds together once again. Give my son a hug for me to. He might ask you if you want to ride in his race car. Just have dad go with you you’ll be fine. Till I see you again love you.🌹

Grandma, you are going to be truly missed! You were one of a kind with a beautiful smile and heart of gold. I'm going to miss our talks about MSU💚 and the Lions💙 and how one day the Lions will win the super bowl. Please watch over our family.
