Skip and I are so thankful to have had time with Beuford and Dollie! Skip talks alot of his time in the music group and traveling around. They truly made the kids and I feel so loved and welcomed us with open arms. We have beautiful memories of dinner and music with them in their home and our times in worship. Your dad will be truly missed, but the reunion will be all the more sweeter in heaven.
Our family has lost a dear man of God. I love you all so much.

Condolences to Kathy and Karen for your loss. I have such fond memories of Ray and the entire Tuell family, from the backyard pool where we were always welcome to the musical hootenanies in the living room. Rest in peace Ray. I know there must have been a celebration for your homecoming and reunion with Dolly, Mike and Delores.
Our deepest sympathies. Beuford was always a good friend. May God comfort each of you.
My sincere sympathy to the entire Tuell family. When the Tuell's lived in Roseville, California, they were our neighbors. I have memories of spending time with the Tuell family. There was often music played at their home - it was something when Ray got the band together in his living room. That was I'd say almost weekly. Hugs to Kathy and Karen. May he rest in peace. I smile at the joyful reunion in heaven when Ray was reunited with Dollie, Mike, and Delores. The Boden girls loved the Tuell famlly and the fond memories of summertime fun in their pool. This was in the days of my childhood and that of the Tuell kids. Back then Mike was only 4 years old.
So sorry to hear of Beuford passing. Praying for you to have strength to get through this grieving process. More than anything remember Godâ€™s in control.
Our deepest sympathy
as always my prayers are with you all
Prayers of comfort for family
Beuford was my client first and then later my friend. I always enjoyed seeing him. Once he played "Somewhere My Love" on the piano for me, it was beautiful. He was a very talented musician. I will miss seeing him Harps. May he rest in peace. Cheryl Hensley, Mountain Streams Real Estate
