Aunt Bev.
Looking at this picture I see that Jacobsen smile. Mom and Uncle Gordy had it too! I still remember what you told me all those years ago.

Judy, Jeff & Family, Bev was a lady who loved to share stories about all the things that her and Herbie did together. She enjoyed being able to share these stories with the Faith in Action volunteers as they made their trips to wherever she needed to go. May you all share stories and memories to help ease the pain of this loss. Our deepest sympathy to all of you, Don & Michelle Murray

Dear Auntie Bev,
I remember so clearly, the first day that you were able to meet Mom in person in Moorhead. The tears were flowing - but happy tears after all those years apart. The two of you made up for lost time. The trip to Idaho, to see your brothers and sister, fishing for salmon, trips to the fair, staying at the lake, going to Rollag and just being together. e love your pickles and I make them every year. You are so special and loved. I know you were welcomed to heaven and open arms from your loving family. I love you.

Beverly's brother, Gordon was faithful worker on the Stanley Armstrong farm. He was like a son and brother. We remember how pleased he was to finally meet his youngest sister, again.
We never met Beverly but of the glowing reports, we had, I know she will be missed.
