So sorry to learn of Bev's passing. She was a friend in her early career, and she was there in the hospital as I gave birth to my second of three sons! I send prayers to her family and those close to her at this difficult time.

So sorry for the loss of your mom Doug. Although I did not have the pleasure in knowing her, I know you, as a wonderful man that she raised. Here if you need anything, always.
