  • Just want to extend my sincere condolences to each of you who loved Bev so deeply! I absolutely looked forward to time spent with her EVERY time! I’ll so miss her quick wit …just wish she’d written a book so we could continue to laugh with her! Bev and Eddie were a great team and so committed to helping each other in every way! Bev was so proud of Lois ( her daughter)and her family. Nothing brought that special twinkle to her eyes like her two grandsons! It was always evident how much she admired and respected her youngest sister -also Lois! I know she enjoyed time spent with her other sister, Sandy, and her family as well! Family gatherings were the best! I feel honored to have gotten to know Bev and to have been at the family events many times! My faith assures me that Bev is enjoying her place in heaven surrounded by her loved ones and without any earthly concerns! We’ll all see each other again! Rest In Peace Bev! 🙏🏻😘🐾🐾
