  1. Beany was a wonderful neighbor to have when I was growing up with Tom right across the street. He was always curious what I was doing and how I was doing it long after I had grown up and moved away. He was nice a person you’d ever want to meet and have as a neighbor.

  2. So sorry for your loss.
    “Beany” was the across the street neighbor of my deceased parents. They were the best of neighbors over the years.

  3. John and Rose Webster
