Dear Louis and Family,

I was saddened to hear about the passing of Bessie. She always had such a wonderful smile and was so kind to everyone that came into contact with her. In high school i worked on the yearbook and had the pleasure of going to her store and took pictures for an ad.

Bessie was certainly a kind person who will be missed by many people in Bellaire. Our thoughts and prayers are with your family and for Bessie.

God Bless.
