Aunt Bev was the most amazing woman I have ever known, I will never forget that sweet voice. She never judged you but would let you know when she didn't approve. Aunt Bev I love you so much and you will never be forgotten and I will always have you in my thoughts and memories.

gosh, I have known Bev for almost 50 years, she is five months older than I am. We had a lot in common and a lot to share, we had so much fun together, laughing, crying, acting like silly teenagers. Beverly was so loving and caring for people. I know she was always there for me. I remember my dad always saying "O Beverly is so beautiful, such a pretty face, my parents liked and loved her very much, we were a lot like sisters in our earlier days. I am comfort by knowing Beverly was saved and believed in Jesus Christ. I will miss her so much. Will miss her hugs and kisses on the cheek every time you saw her. Beverly I miss you already.
