Sandy, so sorry to hear about your mom. She looks much like I remember her at Mt. Carmel Friends church. So many good memories of chatting during church with you there when we were teens. Blessings, Robin

Bea and Leo were dear friends of my parents. They played cards together in their golden years. I will remember Bea as our church organist. She was always a classy dresser, had a very sweet demeanor, and was quick to give me a smile. God bless you as you go about this adjustment of loss. I am picturing her now with Leo and Mom and Dad. May she rest in peace. God be with you as you say your final goodbyes today. Love ever, Susie
