to Bea Gaddy
An Angel Among Us
By DC Moore
I never met an angel. But I did meet Bea
Gaddy. this small, black woman of momentous character was the
epitome of what can only be described as Heavenly. I never met
an angel, but I met Bea Gaddy.
Bea Gaddy was a lady of charm. Her
smile was warm and pleasing to the sight. her words were
soft-spoke but commanding and yet very pleasing to the ear. When
she spoke people were drawn to listen and they obeyed her wishes
because they knew it was the right thing to do. i never met an
angel, but I met Bea Gaddy
Bea Gaddy gave away everything and never
asked for anything. this giving included her life. She gave to
the needy and she gave to the poor. She gave to the ones we
sometimes call worthless. She valued those "worthless
ones" and made them feel special. She gave until she had no
more. I never met an angel, but I met Bea Gaddy.
Bea Gaddy fed millions of people that were in
need. She clothed and loved them. She cared about the needy more
than she cried about herself. They can never repay her for the
hard work, the prayers, the giving, the love, and the devotion.
They never met an angel, but they met Bea Gaddy.
Now Bea Gaddy is gone. we will never again
see her pleasant smile or hear her sweet voice. Will we never
know if she knew how much we loved her? Will we be able to carry
on her legacy? Will there still be a day to be thankful now that
she is gone? We must be thankful for the time we shared with
Let's be thankful that God had
allowed us to have Bea Gaddy among us and be thankful
that we are able to cherish the memories of her. Her
teachings of love and kindness to every and anyone,
especially the "worthless ones" will forever
be embedded in our hearts and souls. i never met an
angel, but I met Bea Gaddy.
Angels are supposed to watch over us
and teach us the right way of doing things. Angels
remind us of who we rare and who we should be. Angels
are divine in nature and are of the purest of heart.
Angels are God sent and they walk among us, some in
disguise and some that are invisible but present. Bea
Gaddy was among us and her presence will always be. I
never met an angel, but then Almighty God, I met Bea
