Beverly, Judy, Charles, Tracy, Rick & Family,
God saw her getting tired, a cure not meant to be, so He wrapped His arms around her and whispered, "Come with me." It's so hard to say goodbye to the ones we love. But remember them at their happiest, and let those memories comfort you and keep their spirit alive.
You Have Our Deepest Sympathy,
