Nevin, Ngosi and Nekisha my condolences on the passing of your loving mother. The dedication, love and care the three of you gave to your mother in her last years is exemplary.
Mrs Elliott, my heart goes out to you at this time of loss of your blessed daughter Beverly.
Bev is one of the kindest, loving and most resilient person I have had the pleasure of knowing. As a mother she has been an inspiration and a role model for me. She showed me that with love, determination and a sense of purpose for my children I can parent successful children even when parenting solo.
Bev, your spirit will always live on with me and my children. You are gone from us but you will never be forgotten.
Love always,
Margarette, Lalique, Janelle and Marcus.

Fond Memories of my Beverly. She was a wonderful generous person. She was there for me when I gave Birth to my 1st daughter. She would boast to the family I was her favorite cousin. We slept together at the gatherings since we both worked nights before going to work. My fondest memory was at the last gathering at Venetta's home. I went up to sleep and even though she was disoriented she remembered and came up to lay down beside me. She loved her family to pieces. There was a moment in my life when I was going through something very deep and she went through it with me and was elated when things worked out. She spoke at my daughter's wedding and was very humorous. Bev my cuz. As am writing this....tears are in my eyes. Gpd took u home too too soon. I Love u and thank u for being in my world. A piece of me went with you.
Your cousin

BEVERLY: Brave, exemplary, virtuous, energetic, reliable, loving and yielding. These words truly sum up Beverly perfectly.God loaned her to earth for a while. Giving and taking are all part of God's love. We can all find comfort in the fact that she was given a privilege that God only give to some, which is, being ill for a while. I know she prayed often in her heart for others and herself. This is her time to rest. Sleep on dear, sleep on and take your rest.
Condolences to all.

She is the most kind and sweet soul I have ever met. She loved me like a daughter and I will forever cherish that.

My last and most recent memory was when she came on a cruise to the Caribbean and stopped by my town, I did not think it twice to share some loving time with her and I am happy I did it. You will be forever in my mind and heart mother Elizabeth. Rest in Eternal Peace!

I pray God strength her family, specially my beloved friend Nekisha, whom I know had a deep love for her mother. God be with you all!

Bev, what a beautiful Christian! When I was hospitalized in Toronto, she brought her mum and pastor to pray with me. She also provided tangible help.

When I took my 2 teenage girls to Toronto, Bev had already collected all the coupons needed for them to truly enjoy Toronto. Bev and family hosted us with grace and generosity. They had aso collected items for my children to choose from to take back to Nevis!

To her family, may their fond memories and the God of all comfort give comfort, strength and peace. Thank God we do not sorrow as those who have no hope. (2 Thes 4:13)
