In Loving Memory of My Great-Grandmother Bessie Brown (Bea) By: Michael Bailey I remember all the won- derful things you taught me through the years. I especial- ly remember you teaching me about planting flowers and growing flowers. The more different colors the bet- ter we liked them. They made the yard so pretty. You taught us all about life and you were always there when anyone needed someone to listen to them or just to have someone to talk to. You were always willing to bake a pan of hot piping biscuits any time you were asked, most specially for me. No matter how you felt, if you felt like making biscuits or not. What I would give to have one of your hot butter bis- cuits with some jelly in it. It was so delicious. You are missed and thought about every day by so many people. It is so hard to believe that you are not here with us. But we also know that God knows best and he needed a perfect rose for his garden oi1 high, that's why he took you. We appre- ciate all you did for all of us. You will always be here in our hearts. We know you will be watching over us and pro- tecting us from harm, because you are our own spe- cial guardian angel, the best angel we could ask for. One day we will see you again in that wonderful place so don't worry, we will be together again. We will walk down streets of gold togeth- er, hand in hand. But before that time comes, always know that you are sadly missed and loved so much by so many people. Happy Birthday, Bea. We love you. Time To - ! 0000'-Make we can lg all ar fanew A Change !e?
