I was so sorry to hear of Bea's passing. I have many fond memories of both Bea and Gene out on Saddle Mountain Road. They were wonderful friends and neighbors. Bea always had her crystal jar of M&Ms on the counter that my little Ryan so looked forward to with every visit. She had a knack of adopting our "extra" animals (Buddy and a kitten whose name I've forgotten). That was just who she was, always welcoming. I always felt as comfortable in their home as in my parents' place. During my mom's illness, Bea was a sweet and caring friend. I'm sure you will all miss her sparkle. I'm thankful to have known her.
