Condolences left for Beverly J. "Bev" Gregory:

    I am so sorry for your loss. Bev was such a special person in my husbands and my lives. She loved her pets and a good laugh. Always a kind word for all.I tried to keep her a Stan in good supply of cookies for their coffee breaks. She would say I was spoiling them, when usually it was her spoiling us. She will be missed.
