Dear Bev, I miss your smiling face & your toots as you went by the house.  I will never forget 18 years ago on your wedding day, you in your wedding dress, pulling up in front of the house, on your bike saying, "Do you have any gas, I'm almost out." we only had a little bit, but it was enough to get her to the church down the road, & for someone to take her bike to get gas.   Our most sincere thoughts & prayers & sympathy to Dugie & family.  Heaven gained another angel that day.  Please everyone one get your Covid shot!   LOVE & HUGS up there in heaven, till we see your again!

Bev was a volunteer at our hospice agency. She had a loving heart and impacted the lives of many of our patients she had the chance to work with. She was truly one of a kind and I will miss her beautiful and positive spirit. I am still at a loss for words. I will miss her greatly. Please know we are here if you need anything during this time.

I am saddened to hear this. Bev, you touched so many people with your kind, loving heart and that gorgeous smile of yours. You are going to be missed by so many. Doogie keep all those loving memories close to your heart. Prayers for strength and comfort for you  and Family.

Michael, 
It took us a while to find the words, and I still don’t think we have the right ones. Please accept our condolences. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.  Bev will be forever in our hearts. She was the family we chose. We called her “Sis” and meant it.  When you were friends with Beverly, she took you into her heart and she let you know you were loved. She was the most selfless, kind person and she inspired us to be better through her example. She made everything more F.U.N.  She truly was a ray of sunshine. ☀️ In this walk through life, we were blessed to have known such a special soul. Our hearts ache with you. May you find peace in all the wonderful memories. We love you, Do-g, and pray God holds you in his arms. We are so very sorry.
