My sweetest friends, The Melvins! I have known and loved Sid, Georgia, Randy and Beth so many years - since Beth was about six years old. So many sweet memories of Beth when she was in grade school and would visit in my home! And many memories of our families attending Raleigh Church of Christ and Beth as a classmate of my son, Johnny, attending Harding Academy. Such a beautiful teenager with a voice to match! I have been so blessed to have kept up with all the extended family all these years, and to enjoy the good times and to get through the hard times with them. I also came to know Ollie and to love and appreciate him as he loved Beth and cared for her. I especially appreciate Ollie for his kindness is keeping me aware of Beth's recent illness. I will hold both of them in my heart!

I'd like to extend my deepest condolences to Ollie and the family. I worked with Beth at BellSouth and even though I didn't know her real well, I do know that she was a very sweet and kind person who always saw the best in people. Through a mutual friend, I learned what a caring and generous soul she was. She opitimized the true meaning of a friend and will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her.

I am so sad to her of Beth’s passing. We were best friends in high school, church and college room mates at Harding. Our parents were very close. The thing that stands out to me is her love for music, singing and dancing. In our dorm room instead of studying she would blast 70’s music from the stereo dancing and singing away while holding a hairbrush like is was a microphone. She had such a beautiful voice! We shared so many private jokes that only she and I would get.
We lost touch over the years but she reconnected with me via email when her dad passed away. From then on we would keep in touch once or twice a year. So I knew she struggled with her health but still this comes as a shock. She was a dear, dear friend and I am so thankful for the memories I have. My prayers will be with you all, especially Ollie.

One of my fondest memories of Beth is her wonderful laugh and how it would start a domino effect of laughter among others. She had a great sense of humor, was an exemplary hostess, and a caring friend. I will miss her greatly.

Beth was a sweetheart! When I started working at BellSouth and nervous about new job, new people, Beth was welcoming with a most pleasant and sincere voice, helpful and kind. Great sense of humor, amazing cook, and a truly nice person!
Beth, rest now, free from pain! God bless you and your family!
