My deepest sympathy is extended to Pam, Terry, Shawn & Chun. Words cannot tell the sadness I feel for all of you. Aunt Bea will be missed by all. Some people you only see for a small amount of time in life leave the most wonderfull memories. That can be said of all of my memories of Aunt Bea.
I always enjoyed talking to her on the phone. Usually a couple of times a year. Do keep in touch

Love Jack
