Beverly was not only my friend but a working woman I always admired. She had spunk. We had many card games together and lots of laughs. We shared raising children, having parents that worked in our businesses and lived in the area as well as philosophies about nothing. We sure did like to talk. We lately have shared emails and I will be sorry not to hear from her. May the love she shared with you make the days ahead easier. Sincerely Pam

I was only 9 when Beverly15 would babysit me while my parents went out at nights. I will always remember how one evening she kissed me on the cheek as we were goofing around and I blushed for the very first time. I adored her for weeks after that and had my very first crush on a girl. This is how I will always remember Beverly..

My sincere condolences,

My thoughts and prayers go to the entire family. Beverly was my first boss from babysitting Mike & Neely to working at Ray Skinner Frames. She was always funny and had spunk. Again, my thoughts are with Frank, Mike, Neely and Ms. Skinner. May God Bless and keep you all..

Ray III was the life of our party, we still miss him. Bev was the tower of strength always her own person, even as a young girl. When they came into the world, they were crying and everyone around you was smiling. Try to live your life so that when you leave this world everyone is crying and you are smiling as you look down. I know BEV is smiling.

There are stars whose light reaches the earth only after they themselves have disintegrated. And there are individuals such as Beverly whose memory lights the world after she has passed from it. These lights and her memories should shine in the darkest night for you and her children and grand-children. My deepest condolences to you and your family.

Warmest regards,
