Mrs. Beulah lived a good life raising and loving on her children and all she encountered. To know her, was to know love, joy and happiness. She embodied a smile that spoke volumes. Ms. Beulah and Mr. Pete left a well built dynasty with a legacy that will live for generations. Sending prayers of comfort, love and healing to the White family and friends.

I send my most sincere condolences for your loss. Mrs. White was a beautiful and loving soul who always welcomed me into her home and heart. I know that you are grieving but hope you find comfort in this scripture from John 14:1-3: “Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me. My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am." We know that Mrs. White is with the Lord, in His loving arms. With love, Michelle Sanderson & Family (niece of Eric & Anita White, daughter of Michael & Liza Sanderson)
