    Bill, Chet, Ginny and all friends of Bess - We are truly heartbroken. Bess, I will miss you dearly. We had so many fine memories from our formative breakaway years back in the 70's. There are no words really other than we talked about our final days early on. You're in Heaven now. No more earthly constraints. All mysteries solved. With God. We'll meet again one day. Tom Your Gang - John, Steve, Kevin, Tom, Jeff, Chet, Ginny, Duane, etc. Rock on as we always did. PS Night time horse riding on Keo!

    Sincere condolences to the family, so sorry for your loss. Bess was a great friend of my two older sisters Terry & Carolyn. Carolyn passed in 2008 and I remember getting an email from Bess at that time. They shared so many memories with the horses. I know Herbie & Keo were there to greet you Bess! Prayers for the family.

    Dear Bill, Ginny, and Chet, I am so sorry to hear about Bess. It has been so many years since the weekends we spent at your home in Lima. Crazy high school days! The Trio of Tom Wise, Steve Shanahan, and myself (Jim Grothjan) heading to the Cable house. I am very sad to hear this news. Sincerely, Jim Grothjan
