So sorry to hear of Bev's passing. Always loved to see her post on FB and how hard she fought the battle and her always beautiful smile. So many wonderful memories of growing up with her and Kathy on Samoa Dr. We got into a lot trouble from time to time with Wood's and Nita ...drinking Wood's liquor and filling up back up with water! Sending the whole family love and light.....she is at peace.....
