Patsy, Aubie, Chuck and Renee my thoughts are with all of you. Losing a spouse I have not experience but, Parents, Sister and Grandparents I know how it hurts. Sonny was one of just a few left of the older Beams generation which we are all a proud part of. Our grandparents and parents has left us all in a great family bond which is the best thing in all the word.
This year was the first time Daddy Beams land has been farm by someone other than a Beam family member.
Aubie I admire you for the way you have continued to farm,
like the way the Beam Family has done for many years,
And Aubie we are becoming a part of that older generation,
Patty and I are thinking of all of you,

PAT You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers during this time of loss - I know what it is like to lose a spouse but our Lord promised to never leave us or forsake us. I have claimed this promise since Wade passed. Much love and prayers,, Lucille Johnson
