  1. The Beecher & Bennett staff ,Erin,Kellie & Frank have been wonderful helping us say good bye to our Aunt Ruby. She lived a good life and left a sister-in-law and many other family members who miss her. Thank you,Sheila

  2. It was so nice to know Aunt Doris was able to enjoy her 100th birthday with so many she loved. I wish I could have been there for that event. I was fortunate to have had the pleasure of her living with us for a short time when I was a youth. She will always have a place in my heart. Don Berry
