Not sure what to say?

I feel so lucky to count Bea and her family as part of my clan. She was warm and loving to us and we enjoyed every minute we got to spend with her. I will most remember her crackling sense of humor. Although we miss her dearly, we take solace in the peace her family can now feel knowing she is at rest. We love you Bea.

A beautiful life in photos.

True beauty all of her days.

As the days and weeks pass, and as you return to life's routine, may you continue to feel comforted by the love and support of family and friends.

Robin, I felt so privileged to have met your lovely mother through your writing. I loved her laughing eyes, and the way you all loved her so deeply, which said everything.

I would like to name all the extended family my mother loved and who loved my mother, but who are not named in the obituary. My mother left behind her sister Nikki and brother Louis; her nieces and nephews Steven, Eric, Jimmy, Donna, Gina, Michael, Marissa, Richard, and Blair; and her step-grandkids Devin, Indigo, and Elena; and step great-grandkids Delilah, Ian, and Luna. There is so much love, so much love.

True love on their wedding day.

A montage of long-ago days.

I enjoyed Bea's wit and lively conversation. I admired her tenacity, which she had up to the very end. She has shown me that life goes on after great tragedy, and that you've got to embrace all of it. Thank you, Bea, for your friendship. I will think of you often, and fondly.
