Bea, you were more than a friend of ours. You were like a sister to my mom and a mother to me. You dried my tears when something was wrong, you shared in my happiness when things were great. We were all inseparable in Florida and spoke on the phone constantly regardless where we were. We all had so many good times together which I will never forget. To Peter, Danielle and Rebeka, Bea loved you so very much. You were her life. Our deepest condolences go out to you. She will be so missed by all of us who loved and knew her. Rest in Peace my dearest and loving friend.

Very emotional and sad that Bea has passed. Every childhood milestone, Bea and Peter were there to share as very close friends of my parents. I have always considered Bea as a beloved aunt and I thank her for the friendship to my parents and to the love she always expressed to my family. Sharing those special memories is something I will forever hold dear. My condolences to Peter and the entire family. May the memories of Beatrice bring you peace.
