We are deeply saddened at Beverly's sudden passing. She was a dear neighbor for over fourty years. Stanley was always worried about snow plowing and making sure she was taken care of. She will always remain in our hearts and memory. Our deepest condolences to her children, grandchildren, and family. God bless everyone during this difficult time.
