  2. I was so saddened to hear of Bessie’s passing and will always remember her very fondly for her kindness to me as Pauline’s friend for the last 40+ years. My most sincere condolences to all in the family. I feel very fortunate for having had the privilege of knowing this wonderful lady and I’m sure she will be greatly missed by her loving family as well as all who knew her.
