I have such fond memories of Bev at Green Acres. She always made me smile. I still chuckle at some of the things she did and said. She will be missed greatly.

It was an honor to care for Bev at Green Acres. You couldn’t leave her room without getting a hug, blessing and an ‘I love you’. We’d often sing one of her favorite songs, ‘Let Me Call You Sweetheart’. She’s missed greatly. Rest in Heaven, Bev. My sincerest condolences to her loved ones.

My Mom was a woman defined by grace and wisdom. My heart breaks as you leave us physically yet, it rejoices that you will forever be our guardian angel. Love and miss you Mom.

I really enjoyed taking care of Bev at Green Acres of Lowell. She was such a sweetie and loved to sing, "You are My Sunshine." with me. Every time, I left her room, she would always say, "God Bless You." :) She will be dearly missed!
