    A person that departs from this earth never truly leaves, for they are still alive in our hearts and minds, through us, they live on. Please accept my condolences, Mrs. Bee will not be forgotten and will be truly missed.

    To the Family of Mrs Bea I extend my heartfelt condolences. She was always a sweet person with a quiet manner. We worked together many years ago at Ghent Elementary School when I was a young teacher & I am now retired. May she rest in the loving arms ofJesus until we meet again around God’s throne!
