In memory of Aunt Phoebe Beale: I too remember the nice long talks we had on my visits to her home. She had a fantastic memory and a wealth of information on many things. I have not known one other person who had the knowledge that she had. I especially enjoyed when she reminisced about the times my Daddy, Robert Harvell, who was Uncle Rob's nephew visited them. She told of how they, Daddy & Uncle Rob, would go to the movies on Saturdays and them come back home retelling the whole movie with much enthusiasm. She once said that when she and Uncle Rob married that Robert thought that included him also because he was there every week-end. I am already missing those long visits and talks that we had. She was my last link to the memories of days gone by but not forgotten. She had a long fruitful life and was blessed greatly by God. May she now rest in peace with her Heavenly Father. I love and miss you Aunt Phoebe but know that you are truly now at peace.

As grandma's first born grandchild I remember so many things we had done together. I think the first Movie I saw in a theater was DR Doolittle at the Norva. Going to the zoo in time to watch them feed the seals. Spending time with her and my cousins and siblings playing Putt-Putt, I think she let me win sometimes. Spending time at the botanical gardens and going on the boat trip to Treasure Island. She has given me so much in life. I'll miss her greatly and now she can rest.

Phoebe Beale was a wonderful neighbor on Essex Circle where I grew up. I have many happy memories . Like she said in a recent visit " I have known you all your life." She always had a nice smile and good sense of humor. Our thoughts and prayers will be with the family.
