I am SO sorry to see that "Miss" Beverly Jeanne has passed away. You all have my very deepest sympathy. She was a sweet, sweet lady who was always smiling. I so enjoyed going with the youth to see her and singing Christmas carols. She was a gracious hostess and wanted to make sure the children got a treat before they left. Bailey always loved going to 'that big house'. She thought it was so pretty and special. Please take comfort in knowing others care and understand your grief. Also know that God's grace and love will comfort you and carry you through the difficult days ahead. Our love and prayers are with you. Lynn and Larry Wessinger and family
