This evening I was shocked to hear of Beulah’s passing from my sister. As teenagers we were friends in Cape Breton and over the years we exchanged Christmas cards. I moved to Ottawa when I married fifty years ago. In spite of many summer holidays in CB we never had an opportunity to meet again. From the many kind messages I read it appears she was still the lovely person that I remember. Sincere sympathy to Beulah’s children and grandchildren.
She will be long remembered.

Paul and Pan Burrill & family
To Beulah’s family: Your grief is great, and even greater, when the one you have lost was such a wonderful person. You know many others will deeply miss your mom and grieve with you. May God be your comfort and peace as he was hers.
What a beautiful service and video in honor of a beautiful woman.
I am very sorry for the loss of your mom, grandmother, family member, friend….such a gentle person who is now rejoicing in Heaven.
Although its hard for those of us left behind, I know her faith was strong and she has joined many that went on before her in Heaven, including my own mom, one of her best friends. It was quite poignant to see some of the pictures of them together….they had such a special friendship and loved their times together. I even noticed a picture of her and Brandon in Cuba…that was such a lovely time we shared.
For us left behind, there is a hole that is left in our hearts…a void, a sadness that we all walk through differently and no one can tell us how to grieve and for how long. My prayer for all of you is that you continue to share the many precious memories, laugh together, cry together and continue to work together as you put things in order. No one can ever take our memories away..
Your mom, grandmother was so proud of you all and there was nothing she loved more than being with her family…it brought a special smile to her heart.
May the Lord provide to each of you what you need to walk through this journey and may He comfort your hearts during this difficult time.
With love and sincere condolences,
Sorry to hear of Beulah’s passing. She was a sweet woman.
Laurie-Anne & Jamie Brown

Thinking of you and praying for comfort and strength.
