    I am sincerely sorry for the loss of your mother, grandmother, sister and friend. I was honored to have spent time with Bev as her OT, after she had her stroke and then as a friend while she attended our stroke support group. The beautiful memorial video shows me how she had a love for life and for family. The medical struggles that she had been dealing with were immense and I pray for her soul as now she is no longer in pain. God bless all of you. Loreen Ranals, OTR/L Baldwin, WI
