I remember coming over to my cousins house in Lansing , hanging out , playing outside. I remember playing with Lori more since we were closer in age. Its been several years since I've seen Beth but would get updates from my sister Carla. Wish I could have spent more time in these adult years catching up.

My little sister Beth! There are so many memories that i could share. Beth and I had this special thing we shared. I sneak out of the house at night, then she rats me out. She was my favorite little snitch! I was always thinking of ways to get her back, but couldn't! Beth was a good girl, so i always failed! LoL Beth's hamster herbie, was her pride and joy! The day herbie died, I'll never forget. Beth's world was rocked forever. I felt so bad for her. Beth was the one always trying to get me to settle down. I think that after our mother passed, Beth felt that it was her place to mother me. She did good, real good! I just wanted to make her proud of me. I am crushed by her passing, and I will cherish our memories forever. R.I.P Sis!

"Beth" my beautiful , sweet, bubbly,and sometimes feisty little sister is how i thought of my sister. I have memories to share of younger years. We went on a lot of family outings and vacations together which she enjoyed doing. We took turns staying at Grandma Ladds or Grandma Robinsons on the weekends so we could get up and go to church. She loved going to Sunday School and singing too. I remember getting a new record player which she most of the time tryed to take over on it. In the end it was ok cause i usually like the music as well. Years have gone by and we moved apart in distance. I still spoke to her on the phone and wrote and then online. We enjoyed playing some online games as well. I will miss her dearly. Always in my heart.

I have many distant memories growing up with my cousin Beth. Such as: Sleep overs, playing Barbie dolls - including using all the great Barbie furniture her mother made. Then there were times at our grandma Robinson’s house where we would see how far we could slide in our socks on her hardwood floors and at Christmas we’d watch the color wheel spin to light up grandmas Silver Tinsel Tree, waiting to see what we’d get from her as our gifts usually matched. I remember one year we got matching red purses and we were so excited! Then Beth had to move far away, I was heartbroken. Years passed, we were now adults. Handwritten letters and phone calls brought us back in touch. Then in comes the internet. My greatest adult times with Beth was playing games on POGO. We would try to be online at the same time to play so we could chat about our days while in the game rooms. Beth will be greatly missed, but one day we will meet again in heaven!
