Prayers for the family, Beverly will be missed by all. We worked together know as APAC, which is now Old Castle. We had the best fun and laugh so much. I did get to see her when she came to see her brother Tony. I’ll miss her very much.

Anthony, Elizabeth, Paul & family. I know you are grieving for Bev right now. Know that she loved you all…with all her heart. Especially those beautiful grandchildren! I met her at Arrow Shirt Co. and we worked together for years. No matter what happened in Beverly’s life… She was always cheerful and upbeat. She was a fighter …and I know she never gave up. She also knew the Lord Jesus…and so, I know we will see her again one day soon! May God give you all comfort in that. I loved Beverly very much. She was funny, kind and creative. We had many good times together and I will always treasure those memories. It was an honor to be her friend. Yvonne Harbour

I’m so sorry I can’t be there. Beverly was so close to my heart. I remember when I was a little girl, I always stayed glued to her side and again years later as a teenager, I remember always spending the night with her and hanging out with her. I remember her teaching me how to drive in her little ford escort. She used to tell me I made the best blizzards when I worked as a teenager at the Dairy Queen on Fairburn Rd (I used to put extra candy in her blizzards just for her). I always remember her laugh. She always had a positive attitude her entire life and she was always laughing. I know she loved her son more yhan life itself. She waited her whole life for you Anthony. She loved her family and those grandbabies were her whole heart. She is an angel now and in no more pain. My condolences to you, Anthony, Elizabeth, Paul, Tony and Susan. I love all of you and miss you. My husband, Rafael offers his condolences to all of you too. Love, Your cousin, Tammy

Prayers of comfort and understanding. Memories of a trip to six flags I’ll forever cherish. The most beautiful soul I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing. So honored to call you family.

Dear Anthony & Elizabeth, Know that I am grieving for Beverly with y’all and that she loved you and her ‘babies’ so very much. That love sustained her for many years. As Christians we know she’s with Jesus and someday we will see her again!’
