Fred, Vivian and Hayley, Bea was always so kind and loving to me. When I was a kid my mom 'Geneva' would say let's go for a ride, I always knew it was to come and see your mom. The two of them were more than best friends, they were sisters. I loved to hear there stories and listen to them laugh about the good old days, I am sure that when Jesus walked Bea home, mom was waiting along with all the others to welcome her. I unfortunately won't be able to be at Bea's service tomorrow, but please know that I hold you close in my thoughts and prayers as you honor your mommas beautiful life. Sincerely, Nancy 'Robison' Vilaboy

Our condolences go out to the family of Beatrice. I only met your mother a few times. Sherry and mom (Pauline Alford) loved stopping by your house to visit as they made their yearly visit to Florida. You were a very special person. May God put his loving arms around you and welcome you to heaven.
