Mike, Sharron, Kim and Patty please accept my deepest sympathy for your loss. I say your loss but we all feel it and remember fondly the memories of your Mom and the impact she had on us all during our childhood. I temper the sadness with the belief that your Dad will have her by his side once more. I will truly miss them both and cherish their influence on guiding me to what I am today. Let's mourn her passing but celebrate the life and legacy. An inspiration for us all.

May time heal our hearts. Tony

Mike, Kim and Patty and families,
We are so sorry to hear of your loss. Bev was like an aunt to all of us. Our parents had such great times and we have many memories of those great times. I am glad she is not suffering any pain anymore and is likely up playing cards with Pep and Les. I am sure they are sitting laughing. Hugs to all.
Love Brenda and Rick Van Bommel, Bill and Kim, Brian and Brenda and all our families too. Extra hugs from Betty. XO
