I never met you, Beulah. 113 years is incredible. I want to wish you a happiness and comfort beyond compare as you now fly with the angels.

Beulah....you graced my home and my life for 12 years. I will never forget you. You were like a little grandmother to me. I will always treasure memories of you and I and my Mom canning tomatoes together, and how your face would light up at Christmas and your birthday when the gifts were piled in your lap. I'll remember Chuck the feral cat, who did not trust another soul in that house parading back and forth across your lap purring loudly. He knew you were a safe person. Rest easy my friend....you've earned it.

I will miss you, Beulah. It was an honor and a pleasure to have known you.
You certainly loved your cup of coffee. Simple pleasures.
You were a woman of deep faith and enjoyed receiving Holy Communion. May you rest now in God's peace.
