I never knew Bev as a sister, we met later in life after we had our own families, but when we would see each other in passing, she always called me sis and made sure I felt loved. We found we had a lot in common, but from what little I knew of her, I could see that she was a wonderful person and loved life and her family. I wish we could have known each other at an earlier age, I know we would have been the best of friends. She has a very loving family and I know she was so very proud of all of them. I really regret not trying to get to know her better. I always thought someday we would grow to be close, but I kept putting it off, and now I’m so sorry. My love goes to her husband, her brothers and sisters, grand and great grand children. Bev, you were very special to them and I was blessed to have known you.

One of my favorite mothers to talk and laugh with! We have a lot of childhood memories with Bev and her family! When she would see me at any time she would give me a "Big Hug"! Sending Strength, Prayers, and lots of "HUGS" & "LOVE" to her family in this time of need!

We will miss you Bev! Especially that smile of "Love"!

So sorry to hear of the loss of this wonderful woman. I always thought it was so cool how instead of calling my mom Nico, she would call her Neato!! She will be sorely missed and our thoughts and prayers to all the family!
