When I was younger I never really was around Beverly Ann much as she and her brother were about 10 years older. But she was a cousin that I always thought fondly of. In later years we grew closer and Beverly Ann helped with the flowers at my wedding on Feb 4 2006. She and my brother were pretty close. He was from Georgia and she had a son in Tennessee so when he would come to Missouri for a visit, she would ride home with him and "get out" at Tennessee to stay with her son for awhile.
Even toward the end, Beverly Ann was full of laughter. Always laughing, that was Beverly Ann. Her mother could not believe that her baby died before she did, but now the two of them can be together along with Beverly Ann's father, Joe Dean.
It still does not seem possible that she is gone, how can it be?
