  1. I am so sorry to hear of your loss. Aunt Barbara was a dear, quiet soul. She preached a sermon of love and Christian behavior and never opened her mouth. She lived what she believed.

  2. Daughters and families

    Barbara is my aunt that babysat,took the three of us ( David, Bonnie and myself ) to church along with her daughters, until we started driving. I never forget to write or thank her for seeing we got to attend church .Aunt Barbara was a true believer in God and someone when you were sick, you wanted to pray for you because of her strong faith. To Bernice,Annette,and Rita and your families,you were there for every need your mother needed with love and care. She knew how much she was loved.

  3. Condolence to the Beck Family

    My name is Vincent Sallie from Richmond VA. Mr. & Mrs. Beck were good friends of my grandparents Floyd and Fannie Moore and they were neighbors. We would also look forward to drive by and seeing their pretty garden every year. Also we would look forward to seeing Mrs. Beck at the polling precinct when there was an election. She always greeted you with a smile. She will be greatly missed. Your family is in our prayers.

  4. I was so sorry to hear of the passing of Mrs. Beck. I grew up with the Beck’s. Her daughters and I rode the bus together and we were neighbors. They always seemed to be really nice people. I always thought Mrs. Beck was so pretty. I am sending my sincere condolences to Bernice, Annette, and Rita. May God bless and comfort the Beck family.

  8. Admired & Love

    It brings my heart peace knowing Ms. Beck has been rewarded her place in Heaven. She was such a beautiful spirit who loved Jesus. Ms. Beck was willing to share her loving memories with those who met her during her final chapter. I appreciate her for allowing me to read scriptures to her. It was comforting knowing she had a gentle, Christian spirit. Although we’ll miss her physical presence, I’m rejoicing because she’s finally resting in the arms of Our Heavenly Father. I send my deepest thoughts and prayers to the Beck Family. Thank you for sharing your mother’s and grandmother’s love with us all! May God bless each of you.
