  1. So very sad. It has taken me a while to be able to write. Beverley helped me find a horse that my family used to own and helped me deal with my own illness before she passed.
    We realized through talking she was the kind, neighborhood woman who removed my “security” blanket I rode around with on my first training wheel bike from its bike chain. Still have that little white blanket in my keepsake chest. Even before I knew it was Beverley who helped me I always thought of the woman who ran out of her house as I, and my tangled bike, lay on her front sidewalk! Some people you just remember I guess.
    Such a sweet, funny, and warm woman. Just her caring and work with animals I’m sure makes her greatly missed. Yet I know those who knew her far, far better than me will feel her absence and miss her forever. To those people I say the most heartfelt sorry….
