I worked with Bessie at the Arena for 20 years. She often would stop at the front desk and we would have conversations about family, life and work. Bessie was such a sweet and kind woman. I will miss not being able to see her when we return to work. Rest In Peace Bessie! You have earned your spot in heaven.
