    Bessie and Johnnie were long time family friends of my parents and me for over fifty years. Bessie was a loving and generous person and I am grateful to have known her and for her true friendship. My sympathies to Johnnie and to everyone in her family.

    I remember growing up when Aunt Bessie would come to visit and the stories I would hear! It was a great time and of course it was normally summer and I can remember being at Grandma's (Velma's) house and canning corn and all sorts of goodies. Then there were the trips to her house to visit and sleeping in the basement on an air mattress and going out and driving the house boat around the lake. I will miss you.
