I am so sorry to hear of Beverly’s passing but so happy to know that she is no longer suffering and is with her Lord and Savior. The heavenly choir just got more beautiful with her voice added to it. Beverly was a beautiful person inside and out. I was always amazed at how she looked after Johnnie and Otis. Prayers for all her family who will miss her dearly.

I’m so sorry for y’all’s loss. Bev was a wonderful woman. I really looked up to her. I spent alot of time with her as a kid and we had so much fun. We attended church together also. I’ve fallen off from the family due to a bad addiction and part of my recovery plan was to let Bev know how I’ve found that little girl in me again the one who lived God and was full of life. I’ve now been clean since 6/2/21 and I thank her for part of that she was on my heart the whole time and it gave me the strength to push forward. I love y’all and God bless y’all!

Gary and Family,
Bev was such and extrodinary human. I feel extremely blessed to have known her. Her contagious smile and sparkling eyes could light up a room. I loved the stories she would tell and I could have listen to them for hours. Every time I came to visit I would always leave feeling happier then when I arrived. She had a remarkable way on making me feel that way. Her strength, courage and positive spirit always encouraged me. She will be missed, but when I think of her, I always smile. My prayers and thoughts are with you all.
Please let me know if you need anything. My Apologies for being unable to come to the service.
Love and Hugs
