  1. I really don’t know Mamaw Flossie but I do know one thing about her was that she sure made her grand daughter Bradie Beasley happy. She definitely made an impression on her even as a little girl, all the way through her adult life. I didn’t know Flossie, but just to know the love that Bradie had for her, it broke my heart to find out about her passing.
    May you Rest In Peace Mamaw Flossie.

  2. My heart breaks because I was not ready. I wanted to be selfish and keep you here forever. You were always full of laughter and even when you didn’t feel the greatest tried to shine your smile the brightest you could. It’s a blessing and honor to call you my mamaw. You leaving us not only breaks my heart but the hearts of everyone in the family and many many more. I’m glad to have you for as many years as I did but you’re no longer tired or hurting. You will never be forgotten and have a very special place in my heart. My wife , kids and I love you and always will.

  3. Barbara and family,
    I am so sorry for your loss. Your Mom always did have a smile on her face. She was an amazing mother/grandmother and my heart breaks for you all. It is so hard to lose your Mother. Our rock. Please know that all of you are in my thoughts and prayers. Praying for your strength during this difficult time.
    Love you!

  6. So sorry to hear about Mamaw Flossie. I grew up around this family and going to her house with Bradie and of course since Bradie called her Mamaw, I did too! She was such a sweet lady. We will be keeping the family in our thoughts and prayers.

    Love, LeAnne Pence and Family

  7. Such a sweet lady will definitely be missed. My prayers are with all of my family at this time. Love you all.
