    I missed Bev when she moved to WI and I miss her even more now. I saw her 2-3 times a year and our phone conversations – well we always had so much to talk about. Just got my phone bill and our last conversation that week lasted 117 minutes. Frank, Jessica, Andy, Samantha and, of course, Abbie, the loves of her life, you have my sympathies. Love, Jean
