To the family of Mr. Beal (Paw Paw), I extend my condolences. Paw Paw was always very warm and gracious to Lori's friends and family when we would go visit them both. He was always inviting me to stay and enjoy a meal and companionship. He knew no stranger. To him if you were a friend/family to Lori, then you were to him as well. It is that kind of warmth that makes this world a better place for having him in it.
