    To Bev's Family. I was a patient at Mercy hospital overnight last week and was Bev's roommate. We talked about our love of dogs and laughed about how we both loved potato chips. We ate our breakfast together on Friday morning while watching Good Morning America. Sure liked her a lot. She left the hospital before I did. I was so shocked to see her obituary. I'm so sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

    Don, Tom, Chris and family, Our hearts are breaking for you right now. Bev was the kindest person I know and always had a smile on her face. I will never forget when she agreed to pierce my ears and then brought a potato and a needle to do with. Boy was I scared, but I didn't let her know that. Please let your memories of her sustain you during this time of deep sorrow. She is now up in heaven with Donnie and her mom, and I bet she is smiling from ear to ear now that she has joined them. If you need anything please give us a call. We love you.
