  2. My thoughts and prayers are with all of Bev’s family.
    She was just a wonderful person, so very kind, caring and giving.
    I was lucky to have Bev as a friend. I knew her for years and years. We had some wonderful times together.
    She was so thoughtful. She would always include me in her plans.
    Bus trips, car trips, boat trips, shopping trips. We did it all.
    When I moved to Newport, she would come to visit, and we would always have a great time. She was such a good sport.
    When I went to visit her, after having one of her delicious
    home cooked meals, she would give me things to bring back home with me. Always thinking of others, that was Bev.
    Family meant everything to Bev, and she would speak of her family, all the time. God bless all of you.
    Rest in peace dear Bev. I will miss you.

  8. My deepest sympathy to Janet and Gordon on Beverly’s passing.
    Beverly and I were good friends many years ago. My Aunt & Uncle, lived next door to the Morton’s on Begonia Drive. I used to stay at my aunts every weekend in the summer until I was 13. I remember Mr. & Mrs. Morton and of course, Grandma Morton. Bev and I used to take our lunches and go and have a picnic in the new homes there were building in Garden City in the early 50’s. We thought it was great to be able to walk through the walls. I think of those days when I watch Love It or List It or the Property Brothers on TV. I had a lot a good times with the Morton’s and have a lot of pleasant memories. Rest in Peace, Bev, your work on earth is done. Give my best to everyone in Heaven.

    I will never forget you. You haven’t changed a bit.
