She was a wonderful woman. Strong and capable. She was always ready to help a friend or a stranger in need. She loved her family unconditionally, but always tried to guide them to better their lives. I'll forever remember visiting her home, and feeling like I belonged there. She will be missed by all who knew her. I will miss my Tia Beva.

It is with great sorrow that Alvaro and I express our most sincere and heart felt condolences. Beva was indeed a truly remarkable women.
We came to Premont in the very late sixties and can proudly say that she was one of the first persons we met. Her friendliness and kindness were appreciated and will be greatly missed.
May God have taken her to a place of glory and may she rest in peace.

To my Aunt Beva, family and friends:

Beva was a strong willed woman who had a hard work ethic and she was capable of anything that she put her mind to. Yet, she was very loving and caring. I remember spending many happy holidays and occasions with her. As a child, I looked up to her as an icon of Wonder Woman. She really could do it all.

She did so much for everyone who knew her. Her incredible presence and generosity will be greatly missed. Beva leaves behind such an amazing legacy. She was such a special woman who will never be forgotten.

With heartfelt condolences,

Alvaro Garcia

Dearest Beva . . . today was Thanksgiving. Thoughts of you all day as we have enjoyed so many, many "turkey day" festivities together over the past 37 years. You will be so missed and especially as we gather round the holiday tables in the years to come. Wish the miles between had been far fewer so we could have spent more time together. Prayers and consoling hugs for all the family, and friends, who have enjoyed your love, care, and concern over each and every day you were given, right up to the last.

My Tia was an amazing woman. Even though distance kept us apart more than we wanted she always called and kept in touch with our family. We would talk for hours. She had a true servants heart. She would do anything to help anyone. She was always concerned about everyone and always so kind. I will miss her so much. I pray for God's blessing and comfort on the family. My husband Gilbert and me want to extend our condolences to the Hernandez family. I love you Tia and my heart hurts. I miss you already. Gilbert and Caroline Gonzales
