    I will miss Aunt Bev!!! She was and always be my momma away from home. Her & my Uncle Bert took us under their wings while we went to school. My children all love them dearly. This is not goodbye but until we meet again. P.S. I wonder if heaven has a rake so that she can take the clouds everyday. So many found and wonderful memories of this amazing women. Love you JoDean
