From: DW Jan 31 2019 8:49AM To the Family, so sorry for your loss. Hope you will be comforted in knowing that Bessie has the prospect of being resurrected, healthy (in the flesh), to Paradise Earth just as Jehovah God has promised. In fact , the vast majority will enjoy everlasting life right here on earth as God had intended from the beginning. God's Kingdom will do this under the rule of Jesus Christ.

If so, she was my supervising teacher for a Shorthand class. She was very professional and very kind to a fledgling teacher.. My condolences to her family. She was very kind to me.

From: Richard Leffingwell Feb 13 2019 11:54PM Mrs. Xenakie was my high school typing teacher. I did painting and wallpaper hanging for her over the last 30 + years. She was a patient and caring teacher , a loyal customer and friend. I will surely miss her kind soft voice and our many conversations. She was the best of the best. Prayers of comfort to her family and all who loved her. Richard Leffingwell Jr. and family
