I love my own mother dearly. I always told Beulah that if I could choose a "second" mom, I would have chosen her. I loved absolutely everything about her. She prayed with me when I began Compassionate Care as I struggled with the responsibility of a growing business. She knew serving the Lord was my goal and her prayers helped me immensely. Beautiful Beulah was one of my very first caregivers and she was very dedicated and loved by those she served.While working at the Thrift Store, Beulah chose a little doll and brought it home. She washed the doll and her clothes and brought it to me to give to my newly born first granddaughter. We lovingly named the doll, "Baby Beulah" for our little Sydney. Later Beulah became in need of care and she was a wonderful and sweet woman to serve. She prayed and enjoyed devotions with her own caregiver(s) when she still could do so. Each of us received so much compassionate love from Beulah and certainly she helped me grow closer to the Lord by her example. A few years ago, Ron and I were honored to purchase the home that Weldon and Beulah lived in on 10th Street. It feels good to know that she lived in our home and that the Lord lived there too always present in her heart. My life became abundantly blessed the day that I met your sweet mom and grandmother, Beulah. I loved her always and I will love meeting her in Heaven again some day. God bless each of you with your most precious of memories. I so wish I could be in Willmar to celebrate her life on Saturday. Due to a prior commitment in Mankato, I will be with all of you in heart and mind. Warm hugs to Weldon and all of your family. You were blessed with the best. Bev Werder, Friend
