Bessie was a precious friend and neighbor to all of our family (Lloyd and Hazel Cope) for many years. You are in our prayers. Bessie will be missed by everyone she knew.

Heaven is surely a brighter place now that you are there. Thank you for all the years of love you gave to the children and I. Words cannot express the love in my heart that I feel for you. God sent a wonderful grandmother who was always such a precious role model for His teachings. We will share all of our precious memories with the great grands, so that they will always carry you in their hearts as we do.

I rejoice through my tears of many wonderful childhood memories...I see the tall slender preacher man waiting at the gate to make sure she finds her way. Now all of her precious memories have returned and along with her sweet smile...Rest in peace my dear sweet Granny....I love you!! Sandy

My mother, Bessie Effler, passed away yesterday at the age of 91. She will live on in the memories of her children and grandchildren. I am thankful for my memories and thankful that she is at peace.
