    Beverly was my high school sweetheart. We dated for well over a year. My family thought the world of Bev. When I returned to Savannah 2 years ago, I went to see her but she didn’t remember me. I will always cherish our time in high school. She was a very sweet person. Great personality, and very loving. I’m glad for her peace and pray for her family.

    My sincere sympathy to Beverly’s family. Our parents were good friends and we spent a lot of time together growing up. Beverly was one sweet girl and always genuine. I’m so glad my parents got to see her at Memorial Hospital when they were ill. She was a ray of sunshine!

  3. Sharon and Gary Mitchell says:

    We were so saddened to hear of Beverly’s passing. She was so sweet and helpful to Sharon’s mother, Faye. Her nursing skills continued to shine through in her personality. It was so good to meet her family and reminisce about the time Gary and Beverly went to the Sam and Dave concert during high school. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you during this time.
    We will continue to support the Alzheimer’s Association in memory of Faye and Beverly.
