Larry, Moira and family. We are sorry to hear of Bessie’s death. Weather permitting we will try to get to Delhi with my mom for visitation tomorrow. Please know that you are in our thoughts. I did not know about her interest and efforts regarding British Home Children. I have just been doing some reading and research on this most interesting topic. She is to be commended for her efforts.

Floyd , Larry and CB please accept my condolences on the loss of your mother. I remember watching the first man on the moon landing on July 19 , 1969 in Bresie and Harold's house with my wife Barb ( Abele ) and a group of old high school friends. Bresie lived a long and happy life and you will

have wonderful memories.

Bessie Remembered
Posted by Ruth and Ron Strutt (Friend) On Sunday, February 10, 2019
Bessie was a petite spitfire of a lady - full of energy, easy to laugh, hard working, devout in her faith and to her family. She was intelligent and could identify when someone was feeding her a line and quash it with a retort, often a witty one. She could walk on stilts and her pumpkin pie was second to none. Our sincere condolences to her family and friends.
Our sympathy

As I remember Bessie, she was always full of positive energy and exuberance. She was dearly loved by Mom and Dad and we all thought very highly of her. We know she's with our heavenly Father now having a wonderful time as always. With lots of love from Ruth Ann and Jim.
