Condolence & Memory Journal

Bryan, Barb and family, so sorry about the loss of Bev. I have known her for many, many years. I am one of the girls she had lunch with at the White's. We were kind of known as the lunch bunch. We all had many discussions over the years. Even after I retired from U.S. West, I still managed to go down frequently to have lunch with the group. She was so proud of her family and the conversations were always stimulating. It certainly will never be the same without her there. She will certainly be greatly missed. Your family is in my thoughts and prayers.

Bryan and Barb & family:
I was shocked to read that Bev had passed. I wish you would of called me and I would of stopped by and visited. Recalling when both of us worked we would go for coffee at the Drumstick Cafe. She always had so much news for what was going around the world as she said she bought every newspaper possible. It is hard to loose someone we love but thank good for memoriesas they will always remain in our hearts and mind. Please accept my sympathy. May God bless you and comfort you at this time of sorrow.

Auntie Bev, Thank you for the memories throughout the years. You were always the spunky one in any setting! As a child, I would look forward to Christmas Eve at your house all year long. From sitting at the little kids table chowing down on grandmas home made buns, playing hide and seek in your basement (under the pool table was my favorite hiding spot) to opening gifts as a group on your living room floor. You always made us feel welcome, and let us be kids, and for that I am grateful. Also, who else would be so willing to prepare lutefisk and lefsa for a couple hungry Norwegians? :) More recently, Brenden and I enjoyed spending time with you, Bryan, Marilyn, Jonathan and London. You were wonderful with your great grandchildren! I know in life there is loss, and sometimes the loss is unbearable. But with God, we are all found through Him. I know you will be in good company until we are all together again. Hug Grandma and Jason for me. Thinking of you Bryan, Barb and Laura Beth. Justine & Brenden Willman

My Condolences to your Family on your loss.
I did not know Ms. Ringham, but I am sure she was a wonderful person and that someone loved her dearly and she will be missed. I know because I loss my Dad and two brother's at a very young age. people say that death is part of life and that it touch's everyone at some point in their life, that maybe true. But it's not what our Creator intended for us. I found comfort in God's word and I'm sure you can too. Jehovah God promise to resurrect those who are asleep in death in the future, not only does he have the power to do so but he has the desire to. I found comfort in the following scriptures and I hope that they bring you comfort in the time of your grief.
Romans 6:23 For the wages sin pays is death, but the gift God gives is everlasting life by Christ Jesus our Lord.
John 5:28,29 Do not marvel at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out.
May sweet memories continue to surround you and bring you comfort.
Deepest Sympathy, Sonia
