I'm so very sorry for your loss. Bea was such a nice, sweet lady. We used to live next door to her sister Betty for several years. We got to know the entire family. Sad to say we lost touch with Sue, Mary, Rosemarie as well as Bea and Betty's sister Mary. Please accept our deepest sympathies and know that our thoughts and prayers are with your entire family.
