Lamar and family, very sorry to hear about your mother, she lived a long and full life. May God be with you in your time of sorrow. I first met Mrs. Beck in 2000 when working for St. Francis Home Care and was seeing your father, Mr. Beck each week. Your family touched my life then and I will always remeber both your mother and father, they were wonderful people. God bless you.

My prayers are with you and your family. Mrs. Beck was my Sunday School teacher at Parker Memorial and I will never forget her. She was such a sweet and loving person. I remember spending the night at her house on Glenwood Terrace with my Sunday School Class.
