Beth is the first person I remember meeting in the second grade when I moved to Sylvester...and she remained a devoted friend.

I am so sorry for your loss. Beth was a sweet friend to me in high school, and all the memories I have of her are good ones. Of course, her sense of humor was one-of-a-kind, and she smiled often. You all are in my thoughts and prayers.

Beth was a really sweet person, all through high school. She was SO smart, yet so humble. I sincerely extend my deepest sympathies to her entire family, and especially her children and husband. You will remain in my prayers.
