Bev was one of the sunniest people I was lucky enough to call a neighbor for many years. She and her family were favorites of so many of us on Hazelwood Drive in the Bethesda. I am so saddened by her passing and will cherish all of her smiles and words of wisdom about children and dogs.

In sympathy,
