We were saddened to learn that our 'old' friend, Bebe, has passed on from this life. We met Bebe (and Stan!) back in the 80's, when they attended the Santa Fe Indian Market; Native American jewelry being one of her passions. Cippy CrazyHorse made several pieces for Bebe (and possibly Stan), and we came to know them and enjoy their company over their visits to Santa Fe for some years. Bebe was kind enough to bestow our daughter, Erly, with her first English jumping saddle that we still have today :D I was in the tack room recently and seeing the saddle brought back memories of Bebe; with the advent of the internet we didn't send cards as we did in the past. Anyway, our belated condolences to all her family and friends.

Bebe Ventura, a remarkable woman who always made me feel welcome and loved. I will miss her very much, talking horses, talking dogs, talking life. I mourn her passing, and I celebrate her life. Lin Ventura (daughter-in-law).

I wish to give my condolence to the Ventura family and relatives for your loss of Bebe. May you be reassured of the promise that God will bring back your loved one to be "Enlightened with the light of the living" (Job 33:30) May this bring you comfort and peace.

Your mom was such a special lady! Her sense of humor, her love of her animals and her unique style will always be remembered with great fondness. She was a wonderful friend and a deliciously wicked cohort. I was blessed to know her and will miss her greatly. My thoughts and sympathy are with you.

Mom...Thank you for bringing me into the world, for putting up with my growing up for 17 years, but most of all, for instilling in me a musical, positive view of the world that has allowed me to walk a path that is bright and full of Love.
