Dead Lisa and family, I am so sorry to hear of Bea’s passing. My thoughts and prayers go out to you all. Bea babysat my brother Mac and I in Ocala from 1983-1985. I can’t begin to express the impact she had on our family. We still think of her so often. She cared for us and loved us like family and I could write a book of all the sweet memories and fun times we had with her. She was one in a million and we will always be thankful for all she did for us. RIP sweet Bea,
Molly Turner Knox
