  1. Mr Robert and Mary Mohla

    I remember being Bev’s and Hal’s neighbor’s. Beverly and Hal were such a nice and sweet couple. You took great pride in your home and yard making it look beautiful. To the family you have our condolences.

  2. So sorry to see you go Bev. I will miss looking across the street and seeing you out in the yard. But I know you were suffering towards the end and are now at peace and reunited with your husband, who was a great man and friend. I know he loved you because he told me so several times. He will be happy to have you with him once again. Those you leave behind will miss you but can be content in knowing that until we all meet again in the future.
