Beattie was always such a pleasure to talk to; I saw her at Market regularly. I never saw her without a smile and a friendly greeting.

I am so sorry to hear of the loss of my sweet neighbor. We enjoyed our little chats in the back yard, and I wish I could have spent more time with her. She will be missed!
