Bessie was a sweet and kind lady. She loved attending family gatherings. She loved her brothers children and adored their children they brought her lots of joy she would share photos and memories with me. She was skilled in crocheting and gifted me a large doily I have cherished it and will continue to do so in the future. Heaven has gained a sweet soul my heart is full of the love for her Rest In Peace sweet lady

Bessie and I shared memories from the same section of the country. She was from Delta and I grew up at Advance which was 11 miles up the road. She was a lovely lady.
