I will always cherish the memory of three beautiful ladies Beverly, Leona, and Lois who as neighbors mothered their families with all the God given love anyone has ever known. Now they have piece in Paradise receiving their rewards. I will certainly remember the beautiful music Beverly gave us on the piano and organ. My prayer now is for the beautiful memories we have to bring comfort and peace for our families.
In loving memory, Dale

Beverly was a friend of my parents and I knew her my entire life. She was a beautiful person inside and out. She was an amazing model of what a Christian women should be. She loved her husband and her family. I saw her about 6 years ago after not seeing her for a number of years and she had not changed. She was still the loving and kind woman I remembered. My heart aches at hearing of her last few years and I find peace in knowing she no longer suffers as I know her family does too. I want to offer my condolences to the family, you are in my prayers.
In the picture I am sharing it includes left to right, Glen and Beverly, Pat Deisher and her daughter Pam, and my parents Lois and Dale Higgins. It was taken 6 1/2 years ago.
Love to all of you,
