We were so sad to hear of the loss of Beulah. She will be missed by all. It’s hard to believe she won’t be there when we return home to see our Moose friends on the dance floor. Mac and Beulah loved their hugs and were looking forward to our return. They were a special couple, and we enjoyed their friendship. We share in your sorrow, Mac, and pray God’s love will keep you in His care. In beautiful memories may you find peace and strength during this most difficult time.

With sympathy and caring thoughts.
