What a wonderful life! The last time I saw her,she was as feisty as ever! As you may remember,she helped to raise my daughter Lynda who fondly remembers her as "Mama Beatrice". Lynda lives in the Atlanta area,is married, & has two children in their 20's.Mama Beatrice helped to frame her into the person she is today. I am thankful for all the care she gave.

You have our deepest sympathy over your loss. She was a good friend of my mother's and I'm sure they are busy discussing the "Old Times". Pete
