Beatrice was a devoted wife to her husband who was her first love. She was a wonderful mother and grandmother. She had a very kind heart and was a sweet, loving person. She treated everyone she met equally and was very straight forward with her opinions, but then open to hear those of others.

One night a man had a dream. He dreamed he was walking along the beach with the Lord. Across the sky flashed scenes from his life. For each scene, he noticed two sets of footprints in the sand; one which was his, the other the Lord. During your times of trial and suffering, when you see just one set of footprints, always remember that it is then that the Lord carried you. Forever in our hearts.
