"Vera, Thinking about you"
"Happy Birthday Aunt Boo. You are forever missed. Now that you are gone our family will never be the same. I love you and will never forget you. Kiss grandma, aunt Fee and all of our family for me. Until we meet again"
"What a wonderful, beautiful lady, who touched so many lives. I first met Beatrice when I came to Washington on a business trip in the late 1970's. I had become best friends with her daughter Debra, and when I had the opportunity to travel to Washington, I looked forward to seeing Debra again and meeting her family. The highlight of my trip was meeting Beatrice. She welcomed me into her home and made me feel like I was one of her daughters. My birthday took place while I was in Washington and, unbeknownst to me, Beatrice and Debra had orchestrated a surprise birthday party for me. Debra had told her how much I loved chocolate, and Beatrice made me the best chocolate cake that I've ever had and a most delicious birthday dinner. She was such a classy, thoughtful, lady whose strength and reverence to God was apparent as soon as you spoke with her. She was such a shining example of what a great, wife, mother, friend, and human being should be. I will never forget the last conversation we had 4 years ago. She was so upbeat and positive, and our converstation left me feeling warm, loved, and uplifted. Her spirit is still with all of us whose lives she touched, and she will be forever in my heart. I love you Beatrice.......Jamie Cox"

"Remembering the times when we were neighbors across the way. We had good times laughing and eating. We shared many thoughts of one another together. I did most of the visiting, you were always doing for the children and hubby (Larry). It was hard leaving D,C. and many good neighbors. I'll always remember you Bea and the good ole days. Sorry we couldn't be there Larry and family. May God Bless you. Elaine Hatchett"
"Dear Aunt Boo, I will always remember the stories you told. The recipes you shared. The tear's you shed. The smile you had and the love you gave. The prayer's. The memories. But most of all I will alway's remember you! I love you"
"Auntie, I know you are rejoicing with Mama and my brothers, and our grand parents, but God knows that I so wanted to bid you farewell in person. Well Auntie, I finished my master's degree and my plan was to visit you with my cap and gown. I believe you knew I was gonna accomplish this goal and you have always encouraged me to continue the journey. The journey, for now is complete Auntie... Rest in eternal piece and if possible Auntie, tell Mama I'm so missing her and to check in on me if she can..."
