            * Per Alice Nelson (great-niece of "Bessie"): My Aunt Bess was an amazing woman.  Living alone in her house in Jonesville, VA -
           recovering from a hip replacement in her late 80s - an intoxicated burglar entered her home, came to her bedside, and tried to steal her purse.
           She wasn't having any of that. She took her metal bed pan and crowned him on his head and scared the pee-waddling out of him. 
           He fled for his life, because she would have taken a few more swings at him if he hadn't.
           That's a story I'd live to preserve, because it just about sums up who she was!
