I remember when I first came to Washington and met Bev. She was so gentle and loving to our girls when they were little. I think I remember she had a big doll collection at one time. Joe and Bev were very special friends to us when they still lived here in Washington. She was a beautiful person. I will always smile when I think of her. Love you, Joe and family.
