To the family of Mr. Beckham. I have just read about Mr. Beckham and his service to our country. I extend my gratitude to him and his wife as part of the great generation that put their lives at risk to keep us free. We will forever be in their debt. God Bless Tim Walker, USAF/USA
Dear Beckham Family,
I have MY MEMORIES of Mr. Jim Beckham.... His family and mine have been close for so many years.
I miss being in the choir at First Methodist in Bessemer singing tenor with him..
I LOVED him, and I LOVE his family
Bruce Lyon Holt
To all my family gathered today, I wish I could be there right now. Please know my thoughts and prayers are with you all, and we will meet again soon.
This is a beautiful obituary and a real tribute to his life. He was a true gentleman. He lived his life with honor and with humor, such a great combination. He and your mother were so special to my family. He and Daddy can now sing together again. That must be an amazing choir!
Joellyn, I am so sorry to hear about your father - but even more sorry that I have to get to know him through his obituary. I can see a solid line leading from some of your most endearing traits right up to Mr. James H. Beckham Sr. I know a piece of your heart is gone. I hope time and friends can help your ache. I'd love to have a day just hearing stories so I can pretend I knew him. Love you.
Joellyn, I am so very sorry for your loss. My own father died in October so I know words are not particularly helpful at this point. Nonetheless, I hope it helps to know that I'm thinking about you and praying for you and your family. May time bring healing and joyful memories. Nancy Dorman-Hickson
Joellyn, please accept my sincere sympathy. I am so sorry for your loss. Donna Belter
Jim, very sorry for the loss of your father.
What a beautiful tribute for such a wonderful, sweet man!I am so sorry, but now maybe he and your precious Mom can catch up on some Valentine parties! The memories I have of 1st United Choir---I am so proud to have known "The Beckham" Family-All my prayers and thoughts-
Joellyn, I so enjoyed reading your Dad's beautiful obituary that I'm sure you wrote. A final moving tribute from his talented and loving daughter! Mr. Beckham was always one of the most interesting conversationlists I have ever known. He was a remarkable man and a great role model throughout his life for all of us, but most especially for you, Suzanne and Jimmy. He was always so proud of all of you as well as his grandchildren and great grandchildren. Thinking of all of you with much love.
Your daddy was a treasure and I am so blessed to have known him over these many years! I have so many fond and funny memories and know that you do as well. I hope they bring you solace and maybe even some chuckles as you recall them. I know what a faithful and loving daughter you have always been ... never more than in these past difficult months. It is SO hard to be where you have been and I respect you for your devotion more than I can say. My deepest love to you and Trinket ... Suzanne & Jimmy ... Reid & Marietta ... and all the Beckhams! Love you always! Clark
Sorry for your lost. May the family find comfort in God's word the Bible. 2 Timothy 3:16
With deepest sympathy to the Beckham family during your time of grief. God is for you a refuge and strength, A help that is there to be found during difficult times. May God provide you with peace and comfort to endure the days ahead...(Psalm 62:8).
Joellyn, What rich memories you must have of this father who lived such a full and courageous life! I hope they will help to sooth your heart.
We are so deeply sorry for your loss. I hope you can take solace in your close relationship and everything you have done for him, particularly these last few years. Please know that we are always here for you and Trinket.
