Beth was so kind! I remember when my daughter Ella was sick on the back path on her way to Buena Vista Beth called me to tell me, so appreciative. We got to know Beth and Barry because of swim team and very blessed to have Beth and Barry as neighbors for almost 10 years. Barry would always go out of his way to come say hello to us at the pool when we ran into him. Barry, Ellison and Banks - may the Lord watch over you and bless you while providing you comfort and love! Your family is in our prayers!!

Rick and Beverly, My heart aches for you; having two daughters of similar age, I cannot imagine losing either of them. May you feel God's presence as you recall the memories that will live in your hearts forever. Wrap your arms around each other as you ask God for strength in the days and weeks ahead.
