Besa and my wife Peggy, who passed away last year, were lifelong friends who grew up together in Taiwan. She was a lovely, charming lady who raised three wonderful boys of whom she was very proud. She had lost her husband, Phil, last year with whom l became friends when we both worked on a nuclear plant outside Taipei, and together met our future wives. I know she is loved by all those that knew her, and now the Lord is watching over her. With heartfelt condolences you are all in my prayers.
