Beverly was our friend and sweet neighbor on Spring Creek for more than 40 years. We cherish memories of our many conversations over the backyard fence when she and John shared stories about their extended family. And we laughed many times when we talked about the day horses from the pasture behind our houses broke through their fence to eat the bright green grass in their yard. Can't you just imagine Beverly trying to get those horses to leave her yard? Priceless!
