To the Beal Family,Though words seem to be inadequate at this time. It is our prayer that the love that surrounds you and the prayers that uphold you be the hope that sustains you for days to come. Mrs. Beal was a special lady and woman who sincerely loved and reverenced the Lord. She lives on through you, her children and grandchildren. Please take comfort in knowing it is through our Savior Jesus Christ that we shall see her again.May Heaven always smile upon you~The Blakeley & Smauldon Families"Peace I leave with you, My peace I give unto you". ~ John 14:27

Dear Zadie,I was saddened to read of your mother's passing. She was a wonderful person and mother. Her obituary read: "she has passed from death unto life" and that speaks volumes. Your beloved mother died in the Lord and therefore lives forever with Him. Thank you for sharing her witness to all who will read her obituary. May God bless you until you are all together again.Your sister in Christ,Brenda Gilbertson-Berlin
