We would visit on the farm and she would give us glasses of milk straight from the cow. She would have the kids put us up on the ponies or Sugar and go for a ride. As a city kid I thought she was wonderful and lived in paradise. She was always the perfect hostess, and rolled with the punches throughout her life. Family always came first with her.

Rest In Peace Aunt Bea, you were in my thoughts regularly. Back in my much younger days you treated me not like just a nephew but like one of your own children, and I will never forget that, or you.

Dear Barb & Rick and all Beatrice's family,
So sorry to read Beatrice passed away. We saw her at the Delta American Legion several times. Indeed from watching the video she had a loving family. May God's loving arms be around all of you now and in the days to come.
