I have many fond memories of Beulah. I had the great pleasure of knowing her in my youth and keeping in touch throughout life. It saddens me on a deep level that she is no longer with us but she will be forever in our hearts.

I wish I was able to attend the ceremony. I will visit the grave this weekend to pay my respects.

Beulah came into our lives many years ago helping to care for our mother for two years. Her loving and caring ways were truly a blessing. She has remained one of our best friends that is more family than friend. Her thoughts were always of others and she loved her family very much. She had such a way of writing the most beautiful notes in a card, whether it was birthday, Christmas or a thank you. Always a smile and so glad to see you even near the end. Our lives were made much richer by knowing and loving this wonderful Christian lady.
