All so sorry for your loss. Memories of spending time with you all at your home. Your parents were the greatest. We all went to school together. Haven't seen you all in years but remember you all. I remember Bessie's smile. She smiled and made me smile. I have lived in North Carolina for 25 years now. I lost mom in 2013 and my sister Roxan in 2016 to cancer. Keep in touch. Bessie will always be missed.

I am so sorry for your loss. Bessie was one of my middle school students at Montezuma from 1969-1971. She was a sweet young girl who turned into a sweet lady. She became my cleaning lady a few years go and was always smiling and a hard worker. She will be missed.
