Our Sincere Condolences

Peggy, Rodney, David, and Mike,
I will remember and miss Bev until the day that I meet with her again. She was a wonderful and brave woman, who stood upright in her Faith, and who loved Jesus. I know she would have us all be peaceful and smile when we think of her. God be with you all.
