    Dear Linda and family. I was so sorry to read of Beverly’s death. She was always such a sweet girl with a great smile and disposition. She was an old friend as well as recent Facebook friend too. I know you two were close and that this was a great loss for you. We are out of town this weekend or I would have been there for the funeral. Prayers.

    Mrs Newman was a substitute teacher for many of my classes growing up. She was a kind lady and a lot of people are better off for having known her. I’m so sorry to see that she passed.

    I first met Beverly when she was a student assistant to my mom in the LHS office. Later, Beverly worked with our youth group at First Methodist. Beverly always had an instant smile as we ran into each other through the years. Seems like it was just two months ago I saw her. Lovely spirit.
