Losing a family member is never easy, but it seems more difficult at this time of the year.
Tena Beetstra left this earth Friday morning surrounded by her children; Greta Larson, Teresa Blaire,
Jessie Beetstra, and Charlie Beetstra and joyous that they were all there to share their love as she
passed away. Mom will not only be missed by her children, but by her 8 grandchildren and 6 great-
grandchildren. The UMC hospital staff in Lubbock were truly angels helping Mom as her life ended
and we can’t thank them enough. Thanks to all of you for your well wishes, prayers and loving thoughts
over the last couple of weeks during this difficult time.
