Selfless, loving, joyful, women of great faith is who Aunt Beulah was. She was mother to many and friend to everyone she met. Bernard taking she and her sister, Velma, fishing in their later years, made them young silly girls again. I loved seeing them together returning to their youth! She was loved and will be missed by many, myself being one of them. Just setting in her living room talking, I left with a peaceful, warm feeling. She was Sammy's godmother, how wonderful their meeting will be! To her children and grandchildren may the memories of her love and joy bring you peace in the days to come. Other than God, each of you were her everything; she would want you to be at peace full of her joy of life. Love to you all.
