  2. So sorry for your loss of Bess. May God grant you and your family peace at this time of sorrow.

  3. Sending our sympathy on hearing the sad news about Bess. She was another of fun to work with at Shopko and we will always remember her kindness.

  4. Bess holds a very special place in my heart. We were blessed to have shared some of life’s journey together. We met in our sophomore year of high school when we were both “new kids” at Mitchell. We were so good for each other and became the best of friends. We were maids of honor in each other’s weddings and visited each other often in spite of many moves for each of us over the years. Time slips by so quickly and I’m sad beyond words at her loss.

  5. My sympathies to you and your family, Adam. May your Mom have a beautiful journey home.

  6. Myron and family,
    I’m so sorry for your loss. May it be a comfort to know she is in the arms of Jesus.
