Betty Beasley Passarelli

So very sorry to hear about Durell. I have known him all my life. We graduated together. I knew all of his family. We all grew up together.
I pray that God will be very near the family. Please help them to be able to get thru this.
My sincere sympathy and prayers go out to each of the family members. I Love You all and you will always be very special to me.
I would be there for the funeral but I now live in Colorado to be by my daughter.
Prayers are going forth and each of you will be in my heart. Love You all!
