Bea was my mother-in-law for about35 years. Not once did I ever hear her say a bad thing about anyone. She always hugged you, always wanted to feed you, she used to say a prayer for my kids when they got sick. She would use an egg. Say the prayer in Spanish, break open the egg , take a piece of straw lay it in a cross. Then say ok tomorrow they'll start feeling better. Sure enough..... They did. I love this woman with all my heart. You could not ask for anyone better. I'm going to miss you momma..... Forever and always in my heart!!!!!!
