It’s so hard to believe! You were far to young with so much to live for. However you’ve been chosen to be an Angel. Life is so hard! You will be missed by so many. I believe life had some good memories of you! Your smile, your love for Payton, and so much more! I know our family will keep your memories alive with Payton. As you know she is loved by so many. Your name will forever be in our daily thoughts, prayers and lives with Payton. May you find peace in Heaven! We all will be missing your presence. You were loved by so many!

Jodi, I am so sorry to hear about Beth. I remember all the wonderful times that we shared with your parents and her when they brought her to Stony Brook. She always called Bill “Car Farmer”. Even after we were living in Florida full time she sent him a card with a Lincoln penny on it for Lincoln’s birthday. I have great memories of your daughter. R.I.P. Beth.
