  1. Our family has treasured sweet memories of Sister Bessie. We’re thankful for her and her life of faith that she lived. I will never forget her delicious homemade tortillas. I still have her recipe for tortillas but mine don’t hold a candle to hers. She was an awesome cook who blessed so many with her talent. Our prayers are with the family at this difficult time. May we all continue to be faithful till He returns for His own!

  2. Bessie was a truly beautiful person in every way. I will never forget how wonderful she was when my mother passed away. She always had a smile when I saw her. If there ever was a gentle spirit, it was Bessie. She is at home now in God’s house. She will always be with all of her children now. She loved all of you so much. Be at peace knowing she is in a better place where there is no fear or pain. I send all my love to each of you. – Frances.
