Bev, I thought about your mom yesterday, knew it was her birthday & wondered how she was. Just got on-line a few minutes ago & saw a post from my cousin Janet about her. I am so sorry. She was a very special lady and I have many happy memories of her while we were growing up.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

I worked for Bonnie at the Burdick Telephone office and occasionally babysat both Bev & John. Just wanted you both -- Bev and John, that I'm thinking of you both at this time of your loss. Sending sincere sympathy. Sharlee Mason
