    Prayers and thoughts to all the family. I have fondest memories of and regards for the entire family, in addition to my niece and nephews and their families. Bevo, Katie, Bevo, Jr. and Joe were great neighbors in my youth, even "Buster". My best to each and everyone of you, and I am hopeful that good memories will comfort you in ensuing years.

    Bevo will be missed, although very fond memories of times at the LCC Golf course will remain. He was a true Gentleman and a wonderful person. Our sincere condolences to the family.

    I would like to offer my deepest condolences to your family. In times like these the Bible have proven to be of great comfort. The Bible book of John chapter 5 verses 28 and 29 holds out the hope of resurrection for our loved ones who have past; and Joshua chapter 21 verse 45 let's us know that God fulfills his promises. I hope that these Bible verses will bring your family some comfort. For further comfort please visit
