Dear Harkey Family, I continue to keep your family in my thoughts and prayers. Ms. Bess was truly special, she had a kind and giving spirit. She was always positive and treasured every day she was blessed with. She truly enjoyed God's creation whether she working in the garden or fishing in the pond, or enjoying the sights and sounds of the animals in her yard. She enjoyed reading the bible and I will hold on to the fond memories we shared studying the Bible together. May your family find comfort from God's promise at Revelation 21:3-5, "And God himself will be with them. And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore...Look! I am making all things new".

My family and I loved Bess! She was a wonderful neighbor and friend to us. I will miss my weekly visits with her and the way she made me laugh. She was a feisty woman with a wealth of knowledge, and she always made me feel welcomed and loved!
