I will miss Aunt Beverly! She was so easy to talk to and listened in return, offering unbiased advice and opinions.

As a child, I remember her, Uncle Duane and my cousins coming by the farm in Princeville almost every Sunday afternoon to visit and to play with the ponies. I will cherish those memories always.

My condolences to the family. She will be greatly missed.

I will miss her so much. We have shared so many things through the many years of our friendship. Even when I lived in Fl. and I came back to visit we just picked up where we left off. We had many laughs over some of the things we have done and some tears over some of our sorrows Again, she will be missed..

I so enjoyed to getting to know Bev the past several years at Heartis where my mom lived and so did Bev. I enjoyed meals, book club, activities and Happy Hours with her. I’m so glad that I just stopped by 2-3 weeks ago and had a nice visit with her. I’m shocked that this happened so soon after. My thoughts and prayers are with everyone in her family.
