After his death in Germany, March 5, 1945, she remained in Birmingham with her parents, but spent a great deal of her time in Memphis, TN, with the Seewald family. She married the second time to Harry B. Arthur, Jr., a career Naval Officer. They had two more sons. Bamy is very artistic and multi-talented. Her favorite skill is that of Flower Arranging. She teaches flower arranging across the country, and is on the Altar Guild at the National Cathedral in Washington, D. C. where she arranges flowers with other guild members.

“People do not die for us immediately, but remain bathed in a sort of aura of life which bears no relation to true immortality but through which they continue to occupy our thoughts in the same way as when they were alive. It is as though they were traveling abroad.”
