To Walt and to Bev’s Family, It was an absolute privilege to meet Bev at Long Harbour on a few occasions. Her warm and bubbly personality lit up any space. We became longtime Facebook friends as well and I enjoyed her posts which mostly praised her children and grandchildren. She was a gem of a lady. My heartfelt sympathy to all who loved her. Soar High Bev 🕊💜

Walter, so sorry for you loss. Thinking of you at this difficult time.

So sorry to hear of Bev’s passing. I got to know Bev when we spent a week in hospital at St. Clare’s in March of 2023. We became friends and kept in contact after that. Please be assured of my sincere condolences on her passing. She will be missed.
