    Beth was such a dear friend. Enjoyed seating with her at all the ball games, VHS reunions and Virginia Ramblers trips. May your family be given the strength you need in the days ahead.

    I remember many happy and fun times playing with Beth and Ann Doug Robertson in my early childhood years in Crewe. Great gal and will miss seeing her as we crossed paths at athletic, school events of our children and more recent times. My deepest sympathy to all the family.

    To the family of Beth Fowler. God received a gift --- YOU, Beth. I miss your great sense of timing... especially when it came to your humor seasoned with candor. NOTHING ever got by you --- As a boy I enjoyed every moment I spent with two of my favorite people... YOU and your Mother discussing "stuff" singing in the front porch swing. You were two peas in a pod... integrity was always the most important thing. Your personal integrity was second to none, and you managed your life with that integrity, love, and prayer. You married my best friend Melvyn. One day I will see you both again. Love, John Underwood
