I met Bea during David's funeral service in 1984 & even through unimaginable grief she opened her heart & swept me in her arms & said, "call me Mom", and just like that I was family. I never looked back. Though I was unable to attend in person today, I cried, laughed & nodded along with you as you shared your memories of this most beautiful, unconditionally loving woman I was privileged to call Mom. Even though each of our stories are uniquely our own, we all use the same words sharing our memories. Imagine just how remarkable that is. Seeing Philip lovingly pay tribute to his Grandmother, her fortitude when faced with adversity without complaint, her sweet loving forgiveness - always forgiveness - and her unwavering joy in the Lord it occurred to me her legacy lies in the spirit of her children and grandchildren. The precious gifts of love, forgiveness, walking the walk of joyful faith have all been left to you.. And at the end of your life may you also hear, "well done My good and faithful Servant!"
I'll miss you Mom
all my love, Maria

So so sorry about your Mom. She was the sweetest lady. Like a second Mom when we were growing up. Our families were so close. Spent so much fun times together. She is now with your Dad and David and my Mom and Dad
