  1. Beverly was one of the best mothers I have worked with. She wanted her daughters to love music and made it possible for them to take piano lessons. Somehow words cannot express my sorrow in knowing we have lost a person in our community who always wore a smile and tried to help others.

  2. Dear Mike, Tara, Trisha, and Paige,
    My heart was so deeply sad when I heard the news. You have never met me, but Bev was my nurse for many years. She spent 5-6 hours with me once a week while I had my infusion. My children have grown up with my nurses and Bev was one of our favorites! She not only took excellent care of me, but my children too. She played dolls, artist, chef, teacher and many other roles while at my house. She was also the one who helped me pack up my entire house when we moved as well as unpack it into the new house. She went above and beyond her nursing duties. Bev was one very special lady!! My family will always remember her. May God bring you all comfort knowing she is in His loving arms. Lifting your family up in prayer and sending many hugs.

  3. Dear Mike and family,
    We are so saddened to learn of Beverly’s death. She and you are in our prayers at this time of great loss.
    With greatest sympathy, Jim and Sandy McCarty

  4. Tara, Trisha and Paige-
    I am so sorry to hear about your mom. I always enjoyed talking with her whenever we saw each other. She will be missed. You all are in my thoughts and prayers.
