You were an amazing dispatcher, and you'll be deeply missed by many.  Thanks for my "second" birthday cake.

I traveled this journey with you as I have many others. Though the hardest one, this has taught me strength, humility, patience and understanding. I know you are no longer in torment as to "why?" and I know you are finally resting peacefully. Fly high my friend.

Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of earth,
And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings;
Sunward I've climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth
Of sun-split clouds, --and done a hundred things
You have not dreamed of --Wheeled and soared and swung
High in the sunlit silence. Hov'ring there
I've chased the shouting wind along, and flung
My eager craft through footless halls of air...
Up, up the long, delirious, burning blue
I've topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace
Where never lark or even eagle flew --
And, while with silent lifting mind I've trod
The high untrespassed sanctity of space,
Put out my hand, and touched the face of God.

Fly high Bev!! Enjoy your Angel Wings . I will miss our conversations on the phone and all of the visits!!  Bev...you were one of the best sister in law anyone could have. I cherish all of our memories!! I'm very thankful you were Chelsi and. Eric's nurse when they were born. Nothing better than having your Aunt Bevy taking care of Chelsi and Eric the day they were born. It gave me so much peace knowing they were safe with you in the nursery!! I love you Bev!! I will miss you like crazy. Gone but NEVER forgotten

On Thursday September 6, 2018 the world lost an. Angel and a bright light in this world. However, heaven gained that bright light and another angel. Bev, you always had a smile on your face and a kind word to say to everyone. My life (as a former dispatcher/Trooper's wife) will always be forever changed for having met you!! May you now be at peace and watch over all our super Troopers and all law enforcement world wide!! Please know that your kind heart and smile will live forever in all of us!!
