It truly takes a village to raise a child. My brothers Greg, Eli, and I count ourselves among the fortunate to have had Aunt Bea as a part of our village. My sincere condolences to the family and friends! Rest in Peace, Aunt Bea. Ted Williams

To the family I regret that I can not attend Aunt Bea's Homegoing. Please know that I am with You and Send my Love, and Prayers in your time of need. I have met Aunt Bea on several occasions. I found her to be warm and pleasant to talk with. I remember stopping by her house with my late Nephew Rodney Patterson Jr. I found her to be a most gracious host. I will always remember her as a kind, warm and loving person.

Mr. James M. Younger
