I am so sorry for your loss. I knew Bea from the Garden Center in West Point. She would come in to buy flowers and was always so happy and smiling. Then I visited with her at the Hooper Care Center a few times. We always had a good laugh. I never would have guessed she was 100 years young. With sympathy, Janis Poppe of Scribner.

I am sorry to hear of Aunt Sis' passing. She was a funny lady and full of so much spirit. I will never forget her Bud Light and Tomato Juice drinks too. My family sends our love and prayers to you all. I hope Heaven has her drinks ready!
