Beezie was loved by everyone she came in contact with whether it be a patient, neighbor she helped, the mailman, or her loving family and numerous friends. Auntie Bea had a heart of gold and she will be missed. She blessed us with her love for 97 years. She was an angel sent to me who watched over me and guided me through life. I love you.
