To Audrey, Mark, and Greg. I was so sorry to hear about your mother. I remember her from teacher conferences (Huss, for one) and sometimes while she was a nurses aide. She was a pleasure to talk to and always so happy. I hope your memories will be a comfort to you and your families in the days ahead.

Dearest Greg, Mark and Audrey, I am just now (11-28-15) finding out that my dear friend Bea has gone to be with Her Sidney. The last time I saw her was just after he passed. You and your parents were my second family when I lived in Three Rivers, and I will always love and cherish all of you, your mother most of all. I worked with Bea at Fairview, and we became close friends. She will always be with me and in my heart. Love, Dale
