As my friend and co-worker for many years, I will forever cherish the fun times we had together. Bev would light up a room whenever she entered it. Her beautiful smile and captivating laugh would brighten everyone's day. Bev, I love you and will miss you. May you rest in peace in the arms of the angels.

My wonderful friend Bev is a once in a lifetime special privilege. Always cheering everyone on, making each moment count and sharing her heart. Her concern for everyone around her was always more important to her than the pain that she was experiencing. Now its Bev’s time to dance to her favorite song. Watching over all of us, Phil, Philip, her pets and those who shared moments of her life.

Growing up next door to Mamaw and Papaw Rash was such a blessing to me in many ways. From sliding down the bank on flattened out cardboard to spinning round and round in Mamaw's chair. She did not like when we did that either. Of course there were the Easter egg hunts, where all the Aunts, Uncles, and cousins would gather and visit. However, the best times were when the Cash family from NJ would come to visit usually once a year. I would wait at the door watching for their car. The girls were always so fashionable coming from a big city. I loved trading clothes with Kim and Beverly. I remember how Beverly always kept me laughing. She had a great personality. I am sorry I did not get to know her as an adult, but will cherish the memories from our childhood every summer at Mamaw and Papaw Rash's. RIP Beverly.

While words fail to capture the pain of losing a loved one, at Acts 24:15, we can look forward to the time when words will fail to capture the JOY of having our Heavenly Father bring Beverly back to life again.
