I have known Bessie for many years. We worked together at First Trust in Parish until she retired. Over the years we kept in close contact. She will be greatly missed by all of her friends that loved her.

My thoughts and prayers go out to her remaining family and I know she is in a better place.

Bessie was so sweet and kind. She was so good to us when we were young and all through the years. We have so many great memories of Bee and Bessie and Mom and Dad. I love how the women would complain about the men when they weren't around and the men would do the same. Now they are all together with all of the family members. They deserve all the best.
