Darrell and family, Our thoughts and prayers are with you all. May your wonderful memories and God's love carry you all through this difficult time.

My thoughts and prayers are with Bev's family. Bev was my only cousin still living in the Mitchell area where my Dad's family lived. i enjoyed lunch with Bev and Darrell on my last visit in 2009. Bev kept a lot of the Trent cousins connected after our parents passed on; I will miss her family Christmas letters.

So sorry to hear of Bev's Passing. I worked with her at Sears for several years. She was always a joy to be around and was always happy to share a good recipe.

So sorry for your loss. I'm sure I knew Beverly as a young girl as her Uncle John was my Grandfather. My dad and uncle ( Jack,Lanny) were cousins. May she rest in peace.
