    I worked with be at the college and she was an amazing woman. Always beautifully dressed with her ‘high heels’, we’d have our daily chats and she was a very wise woman. Bea and I would take daily walks and she’d walk in her ‘heals’. Loved her family and grandchildren very much. She was beautiful til the end. God will now take good care of her. Will miss you ‘Aunt Bea’…love you. Phyllis

    Roy and Elaine, I am deeply sorry for your loss. Roy, I KNOW that the pain is great but trust in your faith and the Lord will see you through it. Thank God for the time you did have with her here on earth for she is now where ‘the streets are paved in gold’. With love and sincere sympathy, Peggy and Ryan
