To the Bacote family, may the Peace of God be with you and family for the lost of a wonderful person, your Mom, Mrs. Beck, who has been a mom to so many in the community in so many ways. Her love, her smile, and her care will be miss by all of us, we thank you for sharing her with us, we all love her, but God love her more. "Let not your heart be trouble, ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father's house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. (John 14:1-2) No more pain, home at last. May the Peace of God be with the Family.
