From: Sandi Callender
Relation: My "AB"

We were so saddened to hear AB (Aunt Bev) had passed, but took some comfort in many memories of her happy giggle. She didn’t get the good health card in this life, which resulted in so many bumps-in-the-road for her, but she was a Survivor, fighting the good fight with strength, grace and an inordinate amount of perseverance. Our thoughts are with you, D2, and condolences to the whole family.

From: Glady (Wheeler) Martin
Relation: Cousin

My deepest sympathy to you Dave and to the whole family who loved her. Bevy touched so many lives with her glowing spirit. Even as a little girl I knew there was something very special about her. When she entered a room she emanated it with warmth and love of all. I was in awe of her! She was so beautiful that even the wind stopped to watch her pass. You will be a lovely addition to heaven Bevy. I am ‘so sorry’ I never stayed in touch! 😥 This should be a lesson to all of us…show & receive each other’s love now…not when it’s too late. 💞💐. Sing sweetly in glory now Bevy. 💗

I am certainly sad about the loss of
My Aunt Bev, but my sadness is offset somewhat by all of the wonderful
memories of her. I always thought of her as a warm and loving person but with a real strength as displayed in her long battles with her health concerns. I will missnher
