Guest Book Memories Will Be Recorded Below

Please accept my deepest sympathy for the loss of Beverly. I have many fond memories of spending time with her. One special memory is how very excited she was when I gave her a collectible doll for Christmas one year. I remember looking forward to when she and Diane would come over and visit. Most of all, though, I remember her wonderful sense of humor and how she made me laugh. We used to laugh so hard, my stomach would hurt, and we had tears. Although we lost contact over the last few years, Beverly will always hold a special place in my heart. May she rest in peace.
