Entry: Ronnie and I were so blessed to have spent time with Mrs. G, Gail and Pat at her home in S.C. several years ago. What a special lady! We enjoyed hearing about her time of working at a clothing store, her love of bingo, her church, her volunteer work and especially her bowling days. She showed us a large assortment of little bears she made to give away and we were grateful to take one home as well and so glad to have that memory of our visit with her. She has a special family and what an awesome blessing that you are together sharing your memories. She is smiling down at all of you - she loved her family. Please know all of you are in our prayers and thoughts and we know your faith is strong and God provides your strength and comfort.

Entry: Mom's wishes were that there not be a local service for her; and that her cremated remains be interred with Dad in Arlington National Cemetery at their earliest convenience, after the priority that all fallen soldiers past and present are layed to rest first. Ms. Bea's family is forever indebted to her many friends and loved ones who have expressed their heartfelt sorrow for our tragic loss. Special thanks to "Shorty" for his thoughtfulness and caring.
