Hollis and Patsy McDermott
My thoughts and prayers are with your. Your mother will be dearly missed.
Linda and I send our thoughts and prayers to you upon the death of Sister Bea. Over the years going back to the late sixties when Bro. Don pastored at Carlisle and we were pastoring at Lonoke, we have loved and appreciated Sister Bea and all your family. When we visited in Washington State, we felt very much at home with your family. Once when I was there and got sick, Sister Bea worried about me as a mother would her child. When I would call to visit, she was always upbeat. We will miss those visits over the phone.
God Bless You,
James & Linda Calhoun

Dear Brother Vice
I am not sure you will remember me, but we attended Seminary together. I was saddened by the news of your loss. I assure you that you will be in my prayers during this difficult time. I know God will comfort you as only He can.
Dear Brother Don and Family,
Our hearts were saddend by knowing of Sister Beatrice Marie’s passing away from us here on the earth. We were together in Little Rock, AK while we were attending Missionary Baptist Seminary in the 1960s and I was invited in your home several times. I was given opportunities to preach at the churches you pastored while we were in AK. Everytime I was with you, Sister Beatrice Marie did a splended job in cooking and taking care of me, a hungry young student. I thank God for a fine Christian family dedicated to His work. Thank you my dear Sister for everything. I know you are in the best place now where you made your reservation by Jesus Christ as Savior.
Mitch and Akiko Kawahara
Aline and I wish to express our condolences at your loss. We were friends in the past but we have never forgotten you and your kindnesses and friendship the two of you extended to us. We are lifting you up in our prayers and will see Bea in glory.
Bro. Thom Stapleton
We will always remember Bea with her soft smile and gentle ways. She was a good friend and pastor’s wife to our family and we think of her and the family often. I know she is smiling down upon us now saying you have no idea what you’re missing. We look forward to when we will all see her again in our perfect bodies in the presence of Jesus and His angels. Until then, Bea, keep smiling.
Dear Aunt Bea,
How I will miss your welcoming smile and warm hugs. I have so many good memories about you.
The wonderful Christmas Eves we spend at your house and your delicious fudge and Norwegian cookies.
You will be missed and will always hold a special place in my heart. Love, Karen & Sarah
We can’t believe we won’t ever hear your warm happy voice again.
You cherished and loved your family so much. You cared about all of us. Always calling to see how we were doing.
We will always remember all the good times we had – the cousins’ picnics, the weddings, the Christmas Eve dinners.
We weren’t able to see you very often because we lived miles apart but you were always in our thoughts.
We will always keep you close to our hearts. We will always love you! Love, Bud and Joanne
