  • Your family is in my thoughts & prayers. I am thankful for the years I got to know Bev better when I would pick her up for church on Sunday mornings. At 8:15 on Sunday mornings, I would either call her or she would call me to let me know if she was able to go to church. Many times she would comment ‘I just love my Sunday School Class’! Of course, you could tell how much she loved her family & how proud she was of everyone! Sincerely – Jan Mast
