I have known Beverly for only a short time but enjoyed getting to know her through bridge at the Senior House. Our husbands were both veterans of the Vietnam war and we spoke of that often. I am so sorry for her family’s loss and ours at her passing.

I feel fortunate to have met Barbara. She was a very special friend who was beautiful inside and out. Barbara will be missed by all of us who played bridge at the Senior House. Marilyn, Pat and I will miss enjoying our weekly dinner at Outbacck.
