  1. Our deepest and sincerest sympathy goes out to this lovingly angel’s family and friends , I will miss Rhea’s smile ,she was a very lovely kind soft spoken sweet heart always willing to help others ! I have only known Rhea a few yrs. it sure seemed I knew her all my life,when her grandson lived with her she taught him very well,I will never forget as I was walking past my entry way window, I saw the sweetest thing ever it melted my heart! She and her grandson use to live across the street from me,one day as they got home from shopping ,I saw her grandson get out of the car first then went on her side of the car and opened up his grandma’s driver side door and stood their until she got out safely,then he ran as fast as he could to open up the door to their home,well I just about had tears in my eyes,she did an awesome job teaching her grandson values and respect,something that he will never forget as he grows up! With our sincerest thoughts and prayers goes out her friends and family! Love always Cindy & Gary Mulcahey. Ps if ever need a shoulder I am a very good listener. God Bless

  2. To all the Beshures family,
    Ronnie and I felt so bad to read about your mother. We go back a long long way with your mom and dad. We remember in the 70’s when we bought the snowmobile from your dad and all the fun we had at that time. All of you kids were little. Adam was in a high chair. Your mother was a very genuine and loving person. She lost her husband way to soon in her life. She used to cry when talking about him — they had a good time for the time they had. The picture of her is beautiful !!! We know Eric probably best of all, so Eric please convey to your brothers and sister our sincere sympathy.
    Kayln and Ronnie Sharp
