Condolence From: Amy Eckman
Condolence: We are so very sorry to hear of Bea’s passing. Bea was our crossing guard for Pakachoag and she used to park in our driveway. She would greet me and my three boys every morning with a smile. My boys missed her if she was off on one of her Atlantic City adventures. I loved hearing the stories when she returned. She was a very special lady who loved life and her family very much. We send our condolences to the family. She touched so many lives and will be greatly missed.

Condolence: I am saddened to hear of Bea's passing. She was such fun to be around and a beautiful person. I enjoyed reading Bonnie's tribute. I can hear and picture Bea throughout, especially 'Hot Rod Grandma'. Bea had a great sense of humor and I know she will be missed by those who were lucky to be a part of her life.

This is such a huge loss to our whole family. May we always cherish the amazing memories we've shared together & Always hold them close to our hearts. You will be missed by so many. Sending many hugs to heaven.

I Love You Grandma Bea❤ I'll see you again someday...

This is my tribute to her.

Everyone tells me how I lit up your life. Well, you were my world as well. You were always so young at heart, forever 39. My best friend. I'll miss everything about you. Your beautiful smile, laugh & hugs. The way you'd say Hello when you'd answer your phone. Sitting around your kitchen table spending quality time together. Eating your famous meatloaf (the only meatloaf that Jon has ever liked with a special side of onions just for him), snowballs & almond breads. Your over the top gigantic spreads you'd put on in your diningroom with the chandelier & special china during the holidays for family & friends. Sneaking down your hallway to reach up & pull the chain to your music box over & over again. The way you'd pull out your magnifine glass to read the numbers in your address book & the sound of beeping everytime we enter in from the garage.Cooking on the grill, shoveling snow, leaf blowing, cutting your lawn & dressing up your yard together. Sitting on your beautiful new deck eating pastrami sandwiches or fish n chips while watching the birds & golfers across the street at the golf course. Waiting for the gentleman who built your deck to drive by so you could tell him how you can't wait to sunbathe on it in your bikini (t-shirt). Seeing your perfect hair that Michael freshly cut & styled. Hearing about his Big ring & any new adventures that would top getting stuck out at sea on a ship with Beyoncé. Giving you pedicures & french manicures to match mine. You always had to have a beautiful rhinestone on your ring fingers with a simple white flower to show off along with your flower diamond ring. The way you would slip Jon some money with a you better take this & give it to Bonnie look on your face. What you want, you got. Seeing your new solar dancers up in your kitchen window moving to the sunlight & seeing the random cats you would feed coming to your back door. Jon driving up & down some of the biggest hills in Auburn putting our hands up screaming like we were on a rollercoaster. Pulling up next to you in the car with our windows rolled down asking if you wanted to race with you calling yourself Hot Rod Grandma as you scrubbed out leading for the win while seeing you laughing your head off in your side mirror. Sitting in the driveway on lawnchairs watching Jon work on your car with Grandpas tools while we took rediculous amounts of funny pictures on my phone together until our cheeks hurt. Once I turned 18 you brought me with you to play BINGO, your absolute most favorite thing to do. Laughing at how one of my friends thought the man walking around was saying Sex instead of Sets. You would always save chairs at the table for all of your friends & would bring loads of candy, snacks & diet coke for everyone. You could play so many cards & here I was trying to do the best I could with 2. B1 was your favorite number. You loved going to Foxwoods & taking bus rides to Atlantic City as well. Everytime we would come over you would have to call up Stan so he could play me a little jingle over the phone from one of his cards & would tell me how you'd let him win at games like Cribbage. How you'd walk around to each room to show Jon & I every item you had in your house that made music or would dance & sing. I miss hearing the funny stories you would tell me about myself when I was little about how fresh I was, the time you screamed when I put a clip on your toe, the silly faces I would make with my mouth against my mom & dads back slider door, how curly my hair was & about the time I threw the cat in the laundry shoot and it ended up in a basket of clothes in the basement. I'll miss helping decorate your ginormous christmas tree with red, teal blue, silver & gold bulbs with white lights. Seeing your spoons & all of the thimbuls you've collected from around the world. I'll miss sitting in your big living room & hearing your amazing piano. The look on your face the day of our Massachusetts wedding reception was priceless because I could tell how proud you were to be our Grandma. I loved how you loved Jon as much as you did me & how you would talk to Dakota & always welcomed her over to hang out & play. I could go on & on & on. Those are only a glimpse of the memories that I will carry with me for the rest of my life. I'm extremely grateful for getting to see & talk to you these last few days as it meant the world to me to be able to tell you I love you. I wish I could see you standing on your deck doing the princess wave with me while we drive away just one more time.
I pray your at peace & with Grandpa once again. Please look down & watch over all of us & tell Jessica hello for me up there. ❤
