“Roger and family, we were so saddened at the news of Bev’s passing but actually we should be rejoicing. Bev loved Jesus and she finally gets to see Him face to face. She knew what being born again meant and how the Holy Spirit taught her this. It’s still hard to lose a loved one. May God’s peace give you comfort.”
