Our family (the Carpenters) shared many fun times with the Underwoods. Daddy and Momma met Bea and Underwood when they moved to Knoxville and Daddy worked with Underwood. Their friendship lasted for many years. Aunt Bea came to visit with Momma at Williamsburg and she always brought a smile to Momma's face.
We'll be thinking of you. Enjoy the sweet memories. You are in our prayers.

Bea danced more at our wedding than we did...and for good reason, she was an amazing and charismatic dancer! Her sweet spirit was contagious. She will be missed greatly.
