I remember all of us (Cousins) running around in the front yard at Your house, after dark, chasing lightning bugs, catching them and putting them in mason jars and of course playing hide-n-seek!
Love You!

Remember lots of memories of visiting Beverly and the rest of her family as we grew up -- trips to KC to visit, family reunions, Thanksgiving and Christmas visiting our Bears grandparents, aunt, uncles, and lots of cousins! Your home was filled with love and caring and Beverly was a key part of that! Now she and her family are in our prayers but rest in the assurance of her place in eternity! Praise God! Peace to you all!

The Bears family means the world to me. You all were a family to me. Julia was my second Mom and one of my first employers. Beverly was the sweetest girl. I am so sorry she had to leave you all so soon.

My wish for you all is peace.
