Bev was a wonderful neighbor, always making banana bread. She gave me such nice coat hangers and she was my card playing buddy. She was very smart. I was out of town and did not know until I was reading the Sunday paper on Tuesday.

My condolences to the family,

I am deeply sorry for your loss. I have always had great respect for Jim and Beverly. I know she is happy to be there with Jim.

Sorry that I will be out of town for the funeral - as I would have certainly been there.

Love to all.
