  • My heartfelt condolences to Beth’s family and friends at this terrible time. My thoughts and prayers are with you.


  • My deepest sympathy to the Ballance family. It was a pleasure to have had the opportunity to meet Beth in High School and share the same shop. Although we hadn’t spoken outside of social media since then – she always held a special place in my heart. (In fact, she was the only person I kept in contact with over social media from High School). I loved seeing pictures of her doggie and it was evident she loved him. I’m not sure why things like this happen to people and their families especially a life still so young and incomplete. It’s not supposed to happen this way! Your family is in my thoughts and prayers during I’m sure what is one of the most difficult times of your life. I wish there was something more I could do or say, but just know how special your daughter was and that she truely made my life better just by having the opportunity to have met her.

  • I met Beth about five years ago. I was new to the area and she opened right up to me. She was hilariously funny, and had a great personality. Beth was beautiful inside and out. Keeping the Ballance family in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.
