I have such great memories of how Beulah (or DD to me) loved her grandchildren. She wrote a song for each of them. I remember how she prayed the scriptures over all of her family and wrote down her grandchildrens birthday Psalms. I believed she was my best roll model of a Godly woman I could have had. She taught me to pray the scriptures and I still have all of her notes of encouragement and that little book she gave me on The Power of the Blood, the Word and the Name of Jesus. She revolutionized my view of God after so many treated me with condemnation. She was the family's human computer for many years. She knew where everything was in the bible and was patient with me when I would call to ask questions. I never forgot how she treated me. She wanted all to live their best life with God. You cant love anyone more than that! đź’— I am eternally grateful to my sister in law, Lisa Ennis

It's really impossible to pick a favorite memory of Grandma. There were so many things about her that were so special and beautiful. One of my favorite things about her is the way she always managed to find me when I was down, in a way no one else could. I remember the first time I stayed with her and Grandpa without my mom there. I got really homesick. I was sitting up in their deer blind crying and hoping no one would notice. She walked out to the bottom of the blind and asked if I wanted to help her make cookies. She didn't bring any attention to the fact I was crying because she knew I was too prideful to be comforted in that way. We went inside, and she made me forget about all the things I had been sad about. Somehow, she just always knew exactly what to do or say.

Another thing I love about her is the way she loved Jesus and shared Him with everyone. Everything she did had God's touch in it. It's amazing to think how many people she brought to God, how our entire family is blessed because of her persistence in sharing His love. In the very end, when she couldn't speak at all, we were telling her how soon she was going to finally meet Jesus. A light lit up in her eyes and she clearly spoke, "Jesus!" It was the very last thing she said, and I think that truly speaks to the legacy she left behind.

Everyone who knew her was touched in some way by her gentle love. I know that she is free now with Jesus, where she always belonged. I can't wait to one day thank her for everything she did for me and everyone else, for being the incredible messenger of God she was. Until then, I hope to share the legacy she left behind and continue her works, which I know are far from over as she sparked it in all of us.

The Lord’s Prayer
My most recent precious memory of Mom is during my last visit.
Tami, Dad and me were putting Mom to bed and Tami had the routine of praying the Lord’s Prayer with Mom. As Tami , Dad, and me were saying the prayer with Mom, you could see her face lite up as she said the prayer. She smiled the slightest smile, and said each word to the Lord our God knowing He was hearing . Even though she could not remember life , she remembered the Lord’s Prayer and she knew that she knew.

Mom writing on cards
Not just writing, but making the card personal just for you.
Different colors for each word or sometimes each letter.

Never missing your day

One of my favorite memories of Mom is her teaching me the multiplication tables. I was having trouble in math and she said that I needed to know them.
She sat with me for hours on end going over flash cards until I could see the problem and immediately give the answer. For me I thought what good is this. But mom knew I would need that knowledge.
She had patience and resolve.
And to this day I have this knowledge and it’s thanks to my Mom.
I love you Mom. Your favorite son ( just don’t tell Eddie)

Mom’s prayers
Mom would pray for each of us everyday
Mom would speak our names and hold us up to God everyday
You could feel Mom’s prayers surrounding you.
Mom never gave up on knowing her prayers would be answered.
Mom prayed for her children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, and their future spouses and children.
Let all who knew Mom, those who have heard about Mom , and those blessed to read about Mom never forget to pray for all we love. Mom knew there is power in prayer.

There are so many great memories of Grandma. I believe the most unique of all the memories were her birthday cards and birthday Psalms for us. I remember anticipating birthday cards from Grandma and Grandpa to see what individualized message was going to be hand written inside with keywords underlined. And I still have yet to meet anyone that knows what birthday Psalms are outside of our family.

That special love and attention was ALWAYS felt by her grandchildren. She would ALWAYS look into our eyes and tell us how proud she was of us, say that she loved us, and that Jesus loved us. She was ALWAYS uplifting. Knowing how proud Grandma was of me still motivates me to this day.

Grandma and Grandpa set the foundation of Christianity for the generations of Ennis' that proceeded them. She taught us how to pray, to read the Bible everyday, how to act at church, and to seek out Jesus with all our heart. To me, that was an absolute necessity and nothing was more important than that.

Going to Grandma and Grandpa's house was always fun. From watching Psalty, McGee and Me, and Quigley's Village to going on adventures in the woods. I loved going to Grandma's house.

Grandma lived a good life. She loved us grandchildren. She loved the Lord. She is missed but, because of the foundation laid by her and Grandpa, we do not sorrow like those without hope. I know that she is in Heaven with Jesus and those that went before her. I'm beyond proud to be your grandson. I LOVE you, Grandma.

Grandma was the sweetest, most encouraging person ever. I think we will all remember and appreciate the birthday cards with the words underlined as a way for her to express her love us. Her and Grandpa are the spiritual leaders of the family and always kept us in constant prayer.

I cannot think of them separately. It's always Grandma and Grandpa. SO many of the memories I have also include Grandpa

I will always remember her "I love you" and " I am so happy I got to see you" each time I would see her

I am beyond grateful for her being so solid in her walk with God. I do not know how her and Grandpa were about to find Lil Rascal and T-Bone (christian rappers) for eric and I to listen to lol. Watching Psalty and Colby and the Left Behind movies (the 70's one) are also a fond memories I have.

Her keeping the record of the family is SO IMPORTANT. She took her time to write the history out in her books. I cannot think of the words to say about how grateful I am for that.

She made photo frame collages of all the grand-kids. She made special boxes of toys for us to play with during our visits. it was so obvious she absolutely adored us.

"Jesus loves you"
I can still hear her voice saying that.

I am very happy she is fully healed and in heaven to cheer us on. I am beyond happy she is now in the presence of God and being able to experience the fullness of joy.

She was THE BEST grandma ever.

"Well done, thy good and faithful servant"
