    My thoughts go out to the family of Beatrice. I’ve always thought the name, Beatrice was such a beautiful name and appointed to a wonderful person. I remember meeting Beatrice a couple of times when I was very young–not even in school yet. I vividly remember my sister Agnes taking me to visit Beatrice when she and her husband lived in a large converted schoolhouse. At the time, I thought it odd but it is very chic today–to convert abandoned schoolhouses into homes. Agnes and Beatrice each was married to brothers, Joseph and Harry, respectively. The only conversation I remember between them is they seemed to be lamenting living each with one of the brothers. I was probably only 3 or 4 but remember Beatrice from that visit. May Beatrice rest in peace.
