My sympathies to Mr. and Mrs. Beverly.

What a lovely and accomplished lady. You must be so proud to have been her granddaughter and you seem to have inherited her good heart.

madprof-this might be part

of your answer as to why no comment on the election this time. This beautiful lady, if you read the last line, was the grandmother-in-law of the publisher, Cal Beverly, and grandmother to his equally accomplished wife, Joyce.

Sometimes, politics just isn't as as important in certain times of our lives.

I know this is a bit odd, but Cal and Joyce, if you read this, my sympathies to you and your family. Anyone who has the gift of being a caregiver, lives as long as 89 and has a granddaughter who is such a wonderful mentor to women in this community, well, there is a special place in heaven for her. My sympathies.

Those we hold closest never leave us,
They live on in the kindness they've shared
And the love they brought into our lives.
