I grew up with Beverly here in Clarksville and two years younger than her. I remember how friendly and out going she was.. She had two brothers, Jack and Sonny. I know that Sonny died several years ago and when Jack got out of the army he lived in Atlasker. I lost contact with Jack and I would like to know if he was still living and if he is how I could call him. My deepest sympathy to all of her family and friends. Bobby Norris 931 647 3067
