  5. Beuna was a very kind lady who loved her family and always put them first. I have had both a business and personal friendship with Beuna for over forty years. Each time I met with her on a business basis, it immediately became a friendship visit, and I left feeling I had just visited a good friend, and had not been working at all. She always seemed to love everyone see met. What a great legacy for this nice lady to leave this troubled world.
