Beverlee was a true and wonderful friend during the time I was her neighbor in Norfolk. I loved sitting on her front porch on a summer’s late afternoon and talking away. I thoroughly enjoyed our morning walks, and our trips to the bookmobile. I was honored to call her friend. May she rest in the sweetest of peace in the arms of angels and be reunited with her loving hubby, Dan. Best neighbors ever in my entire life. ❤️
