My sincerest condolences to Carl, Jay, Rhea and other family members on the passing of Beverly. She was a sweet, friendly and fun lady. I became fast friends with her and Carl when Jay accepted a pastorate in Flora and I looked forward to their visits. With her outgoing personality she will be missed by many. Prayers for peace and comfort to her family.
