I have been friends with Bob and Beverly for many years. There were never two kinder souls on this earth. They are always helping others. We lived across the street from them for many years. Bob and Bev did yard work for sick neighbors, babysat a toddler for free for many years for a lady who could not afford daycare, took in their granddaughter when she was facing challenges, paid a relative's phone bill for many years, came to a neighbor child's Christmas play, crawled around a neighbor's attic trying to fix the A/C when they could not afford repair, babysat a neighbor's cat, gave cold water and snacks to the garbage men every week, and so much more.
They both did volunteer work at church too. I remember Beverly being so excited when she was doing her Christian Counseling courses because she really wanted to help others. I remember Bob and Bev telling stories and laughing about when they worked with the youth when they lived in Houston. They also had fond memories of taking their kids to the beach in Galveston. Bob would tell the first part of the story and Beverly knew the memory so well that she would jump in and tell the rest. They both smiled that "proud parent" smile at each other when talking about their 3 girls and their grandkids. They would talk about how their daughter Suzy knew right away that she wanted to be a teacher. Beverly and Bob also spent endless hours together every year making Christmas toys for the children in their daughter's class. Bob and Beverly had fun painting those toys together and talking about Christmases when their kids were little. They talked about Bob's time in World War II as a Marine. Beverly told me many times how grateful she was that he made it home safely. She loved her Marine more than anything and she appreciated how he brought her coffee in bed every morning and how he fixed up the house however she wanted. She once told me she could never live without him. God in his mercy, spared her that pain.
