We/I have fond memories of spending time with your family when our dad (Phil) first became ill. We all remember the warth she offered. Please know that she is at peace with those she loved and cared for and who loved and cared for her in return. We will be united again.

    So sorry to hear about Aunt Bea. I have such fun memories of staying with your folks while Daddy was sick and being allowed to “drive” up the hill. During the holidays I always bring out the picture taken at your house of Bobbie and I wearing our matching Christmas dresses with our dolls. Aunt Bea will be missed by everyone who knew her. Thoughts and prayers are with you.
