A rose once grew
where all could see,
sheltered beside a garden wall,
And as the days passed swiftly by,
it spreads its branches,
straight and tall....
One day, a beam of light
shone through a crevice that has
opened wide-
The rose bent gently
towards its warmth
then passed beyond
to the other side...
Now, you who deeply feel its loss,
be comforted - the rose blooms there-
Its beauty even greater now,
Nurtured by
God's own loving care.

Expressing heartfelt sympathy in the loss that you must bear,
And may you find some comfort in the thought that others care

In the mid 70's at G.A.Camp,I was awoken by Beth. She proceeded to tell me that she was ready to accept Jesus as her personal Lord and Savior and just had to tell me. I was thrilled for her and remember talking for hours with Beth that night about how she felt Jesus was in her heart and she just knew it was time for her to get baptized and continue to live a true Christian life. I will never forget that night and how special I felt that Beth had come to me to share this glorious news. Everybody that knows and loves Beth is confident that she has gone to a better place because of her beliefs, but this story is a sweet reminder of Beth's long time committment to God and her faith. With Love, Kelly

My prayers and thoughts are with you. I worked with Beth at Montgomery Area Mental Health Authority and even after all these years, I remember her smile and her zest for making the world better than she found it. Cling to your memories and to God's love.

Her light will shine bright as long as everyone whom she illuminated continue to speak of her gifts she gave to us. No words may comfort her family now in this time of transition but know a simple thought of her laugh or a word only she would say differently will keep her there with you. Our unique friendship at Jeff Davis High School had come to mind many times and when she reached out and found me on Facebook it was as if we never had parted. Her wit, outspoken advice, and honest feeling will be the quality I (and each of us will pass the "Beths Wisdom" part of us!

My deepest sympathies to Abbie and Joey and Shelley and Mandy. Beth was a very beautiful person and loved by many. Our paths crossed many times throughout the years, most recently at TPS. I truly enjoyed our conversations on motherhood and the hurdles we faced as "older" parents and how much fun being a parent could be, beyond her wildest expectations. She was a special friend to all the children at TPS. If you ever sat with her at a school event, there would be a constant flow of children coming by to say hey to Ms. Beth. She will be missed by all who knew and loved her.
