My heart is breaking at the loss of Bev.  Life will never be the same but I find hope and peace knowing that Bev is looking into the face of God now — how beautiful that must be!! No more pain, no more suffering, and she will send signs of the promise of Heaven.  Rest In Peace Sister and fly high!

Today we said our final goodbyes to you Bev. Today we had the memorial party with everything you outlined in your wishes down to the 16 pages of quotes, scripture, and musings which we were able to combine into 4 pages. The 6 songs you chose were beautiful and uplifting. Pastor Bob was there for you as you wanted. I did your eulogy as you asked me to do and I think it turned out OK. It was difficult to do, and it was a bit contrary to what you wanted as it was about you and not the Lord. I think I did right by you and it came from my heart. Dorothy did a beautiful job singing but of course you knew she would…she just sang at the end instead of the beginning. There was chocolate! Oh, and there were flowers. I had to make sure there was at least one beautiful large bouquet to set on the table for people coming in, then it was placed near the pulpit for the service. It ended up at Marilyn’s home for the reception, and as a thank you for having the reception there. Of course we also had to save Houston from himself, as some of the flowers were poisonous to kitties and you know he can’t help himself. So now whats left? I can only speak for myself, and I am left with a huge hole in my heart because of your absence. I know it will fill up fast, and it has already begun with treasured memories. Right now those memories don’t seem to be enough but in time they will have to be. Your body is gone but nothing can take the memories. We were alike in so many ways and yet so different when it came to our world views yet our bond was stronger than that of just sisters. Kindred spirits was right. My love for you, my missing you is only made easier because I know you are no longer in pain, you have your dignity and integrity, and even in absentia you still inspire people. Rest in peace Bev. I love you and absence will never change that. Lastly, in answer to your wishes, yes I will.
