    Steve, Stuart and Tegan
    We are so sorry to hear of the passing of your beloved wife, Beth, and your mom! There will be a great amount of adjustments as you continue to journey ahead with a heavy heart. I hope it brings you joy to know that she no longer suffers in pain. That she is made whole. No sorrow. No tears. That where she is she will be singing and laughing like you once remember before the MS took over her body.
    You are in our thoughts and prayers in these difficult days and the days ahead.

  18. Chris, Brian, Henry and Charlie Varney :

    Dear Steve, Stuart and Tegan,

    I only learned today of Beth’s passing. We have known each other for a long time. I believe that we first met through our dogs, Shadow and Kesa and then got to know the rest of the family. I remember Beth made the most ‘wicked’ chocolate covered peanut butter balls! I think Brian and I were not invited back as we ate most of them!! Please be happy with the thought that Beth is no longer suffering or restricted by MS. She is probably up in heaven taking Shadow and Kesa for a walk and if those dogs could talk they were probably saying ‘What took you so long? You know how we love our walks!’

    Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this time,

    Chris, Brian, Henry and Charlie Varney
