Bessie was a sweet lady and will surely be missed. I had the pleasure of being her insurance broker and knowing her son (Doug). Praying for the family and that God may comfort them in the days to come.

I would like to leave a message of sympathy in the loss of your loved one. I knew Doug as an employee of Health-tex. I worked for Spartan Security. I also knew Susie Keenan. I will remember the family in prayer.
