    You never know how much you will miss someone until they are gone….I already miss our lunches where we ate at Chinese buffets getting our moneys worth, our long telephone conversation ( especially during the Covid), our memories of being young together and now growing old together. I have worried with her and her family these past months, she has been on my mind constantly since her passing but always with a smile on her face. Rest in peace dear friend ……

    Jim and Family: I am so very sorry to hear about Bev’s passing. She was such a wonderful woman and I cherish our memories. I always loved her laugh. She loved her family more than anything. I hope you are able to find comfort knowing she is now in the arms of God.

    I’m so very sorry to hear of Bev’s passing. She was a great lady and very kind to me as I hung out with her crazy daughter. I know she liked me because I was “ a good influence”. She was very funny and I adored her sarcasm. I have prayed for her and will continue to do so as she was a fantastic person I’m glad I had the privilege to know. Huge hugs to all her friends and family.

    I am so sorry for all of you. Bev was a tremendous friend to my Mom and to me, and could do marathon 2 hour phone calls. She was everything you wanted in a friend, loving, loyal and kind. I will miss her.
