Words cannot express what our hearts are feeling when we found out about Bevs passing. We can and will cherish the memories from our years of being race families together. Watching our boys race and the long days of scoring together at Central Cycle Club. Condolences to the whole family. Love always Grace, Roger and Roger jr.

John and family,

My heart goes out to all of you at this time; the battle she fought was long and hard yet she did it with quiet dignity and with everyone else’s feeling before her own. You all, her loving husband, children, sister and brother showed such amazing support and love for her during her suffering, just goes shows that what goes around comes around when it comes to love. She loved you all so very much. We were all blessed to have called her family and friend.

Dear John and Family and the Anderson Family,
My thoughts and prayers have been with you all. Those thoughts and prayers will continue to be with you all.
Beaver will always be in my memory as this beautiful young girl up high on horseback outside the apartment door we rented from Allie & Eddie.
She will be missed but leaves a ongoing legacy of a loving family.
