I will always remember Beverly's smile and how much fun she was to be around. She was a beautiful girl with a beautiful soul and she will be missed. Even though she may have left this earth, she will still live on in the loving thoughts of us all and although saddened by her passing, I, for one, feel so lucky she was my cousin and that I had the wonderful opportunity to have known her.

Please know I am praying for comfort and peace during your time of loss. During the short time I shared with her, we always had an enjoyment of life and at ease with one another. I especially loved going to "the farm" and just being with family. My husband and I will continue to keep your family in our thoughts. Donna Powell Lucash (granddaughter of James Jilton)
