I was so sorry to hear of the passing of Beulah. Frank was one of the first people I met when I moved to Helen, and Beulah was so very kind to me whenever I ran around with Frank. Going to school with her kids, she always made me feel at home whenever I was around. She was special and she will be missed.

My prayers are with the family.
