  2. Harold,
    You had a lovely mother and my good friend. We will all miss her. She is now at rest in her Heavenly Home.
    Will see you Saturday.
    Let me know if you need anything

  3. Sorry to hear about the death of Beverly, we worked together several years and she was a very kind and caring person to know.Family please know that there are times in our lives when we feel powerless and grief winds down but the Lord is always near and it is assuring that he will not fail in finding your mercy.

  4. Beverly was a joy to know and will be a joy to remember. She loved to go to Nashville with mom. Those where some joyful trips for both. I was thinking of many times that me and Beverly had wonderful times. I know that when the resurrection comes and she stands in the light of heaven that she will rejoice knowing that there are no frogs to chase her there. My entire family sends condoliences to the keyser family and remember you will see her again in the light of Christ. bless you all the Vess family.
