I am so sorry to hear of Bev's passing. I was close to Walter and Vada when I was a kid and thought of them as my own grandparents. Such good people. I was a recipient of a scholarship from Bev in memory of her son. I put it to good use and have been a nurse for 25 years,
I hope her family finds comfort in the way her life has touched so many people in a positive way.
