Maureen, Your mother was very special to me. I loved her very much. I will always remember walking with her at Turtle Creek and the ‘secrets’ we shared.
I am so sorry for your loss. I had some fun days spent with Beulah. She was always there with a smile and could always make me laugh. She will be greatly missed by many.
As a child, I was sure that ‘Aunt’ Beulah was the person who placed the stars in the sky. The anticipation of her visit was equal to Christmas morning. She made me laugh and filled me with joy. I am at peace that she is my angel now and no longer has the pains and worries of an earthly body.
With all my love!
Maureen, Kevin & Patti, I was so sorry to hear of your Mother passing. She was a very special ‘Aunt’ to me. As a small child, I remember when she moved here. She always showed me alot of attention. I will be praying for you all, that God will comfort you in this dificult time. God bless you all. Mary Israel’s youngest daughter… Jolanda. Maureen e-mail me sometime. Would love to hear from you.
