Dear Bea, I will miss your gentle voice on the phone. I can still hear you say, 'My dear sister' when you were passionate about any subject. You were my sickle cell buddy and kept me in the loop. We laughed together across the miles. You were the beatitudes embodied in the kind and gentle soul you were. You worked hard, were dedicated and cared for others. You were a thinker. Your star will shine overhead now. I will miss you. Rest in the arms of Christ Jesus. Bridget Reynolds
