My heart goes out to Brother Roundtree, a fellow minister. His beloved wife was and is an inspiration and has left a great legacy. We rejoice together with the great hope of seeing her again; I believe in a special place for the wives of Gospel ministers. My late wife, Faye, is a part of that great company in a better world. God bless.

It’s so hard to put into words what this wonderful lady meant to me… I met Bea in February 1998 when she and Pastor Rountree became my neighbors..the love and support she shared was amazing…thank you Bea for being there with me when I lost my husband in 2001…my prayers to the Rountree Family 🙏

Ms. Bea was an Angel on Earth. Her presence was always so calming and always offered peace. My fondest memory was when she was cutting my hair and she said, ” Those eye brows really need to be fixed. Do you want them done?” Of course I said sure. I had no idea what was involved. It was a funny moment as I then found out how painful getting your eyebrows wax would be! She and my mother laughed with me!

I had the greatest honor of having this wonderful lady in my life As a pastors wife and first lady of West Metro Church I had great love and respect for her. Never saw her without a smile on her face even tho she was in great pain. What an example she was to me, as to my service for and in God.I am praising our father for his love for her and healed her COMPLETELY.. See you soon sister. Pastor, as you and family celebrate her graduation I rejoice with you. Love and prayers, Inez Maddox.

Bea was a precious God fearing and caring beautiful person. She always had a word of encouragement and would pray with us when I called for a particular need, when I called in desperation, she would be calm and reassuring that God had this! Now God has beautiful Bea, words cannot express enough to Pastor Roundtree and the family for their temporary precious loss, temporary, because they will see her again. God bless and wrap His loving arms around Pastor & family to comfort them at this time and the days to come until they are with sweet Bea again. Love & prayers Mary Ann & Alan Campbell

Words are inadequate to fully describe how much her friendship meant. I loved how she would lower her head and lean in to share a funny comment or story. Her laughter was contagious. Her smile was authentic. Her hugs were sweet medicine and oh so timely!
