The boy I knew as Iowa, was a close friend of my grandson Vance Beeson. Both now in heaven. I remember Iowa being at the Beesons house in Eagle. My very deepest sympathy for the family. They joined us at the cemetery on Friday, as it was Vance’s 33 Birthday. Much appreciated by the Beeson family! Prayers for the family. G-baby the name Vance gave me! ?
