Dear Beth, I am so sorry to hear about to loss of your loving mother, Beady. I did receive a phone call about her passing but was away on vacation. I am deeply sorry that I could not be with you and your family at the service. But I have nothing but fond memories of her caring and wonderful personality. She was always a positive person who never had a bad word to say about anybody. My sincere sympathy to you and your family as the great memories of your mom will help you get through this difficult time.

Dear Beth I am glad I knew Beady. She showed me that it is still possible to be aware and excited about things around us even if others think we are too old to get involved. I enjoyed her company and the way she made sure she completed a good job if she took on a responsibility .Her ability to have fun helped others like me to have fun. My sincere sympathy to you and the beloved grandsons.

Sincerest condolences for a remarkable lady, who was kind, generous, dependable,trustworthy, and a gem of a coworker. Meeting and working with her at Jefferson School in Bergenfield had a special meaning to my life. I'm sorry I was informed of her death too late to see Beth and her boys in person to convey my sympathy to your family.

Dearest Beth, I have so many memories of our times on Momar Drive. Your Mom was always so sweet and kind to me. I loved going to your home to play! I remember your Mom at BHS, too, and thank God that I got to see her earlier this year. My love to you and your sons, and may Beattie rest in eternal peace.
