We are heartbroken for you all. What a loss for you. Please know you are all in our thoughts and prayers. Beebee will forever live in our memories and in our hearts with his head thrown back in laughter; most likely from one of his family members telling a story on him! He was a true force of nature: an honorable businessman, a man who cared deeply about his community and a man who loved his family more than anything! May God be with all those who mourn his passing. You are in our hearts and our prayers. Sending love and light, Candi and Candi Cain-Borgman and family
