Bessie was a warm and caring person who was one of my grandmother's, Mildred Carder, best friend. Growing up, I remember spending many days swimming in Bessie's pool, eating popsicles, and playing in the water. My favorite memory was when I was sick one summer and had to stay inside for a few days in the heart of summer. Bessie knew it was hard for me so she brought me a cigar box full of fun things to do to occupy my time, along with a plate of my favorite treat - homemade chocolate chip cookies. This act was a testament to the thoughtful, loving, and caring person she always was. She was a shining light and had a positive spirit always. The light of her life was Don, Bill, Sheila, and Dawn Ray. To her family, I send my love and condolences. Please know how she was greatly loved by myself, as well my grandparents, Ken and Mildred Carder. Prayers and love during this difficult time. Love, Amy Schott-Collins
