  4. Sending all my love and strength across the ocean. Bev was such a huge part of my life growing up. My second mum and so similar to my own. Totally wonderful, great fun, and so caring and supportive. I have so many fond memories of hardy court and the farm. And of encouraging words and cuddles from Bev through the tough time. You will be so missed but always loved. Xxx.

  8. Nana Bev was an amazing woman.
    I’ll always remember how glamorous and refined she was, no matter the circumstance.

    From meeting her as a teenager, when befriending Ashleigh, I could see how much she loved her family, and how she was able to connect with her grandkids.
    It was a new experience for me to meet a grandmother who could laugh at the dirty jokes we made, and make some of her own!

    She was the light in every room, and impossible to forget.

    She will be dearly missed, and leaves behind some amazing memories for her family and friends to reflect back on

  9. So sorry for your loss. Thinking of you and your family at this sad time. I’m sure she was very proud of you all
    Love and hugs to you all

    • To Allen, Cheryl, Erin and families, Beverley was the best sister ever. When we first met at the airport in December 2000, we clicked, so well, both having the same likes and sense of humour, even the same art work on fingernails. Thank you for a great welcome into my Long Lost Family, l love you all dearly, and can’t wait to see you all again. I will miss my sister so much, but glad to have know her for 20 years. We had great times and great memories, never forgotten xxx

  19. Bev,
    It was an absolute pleasure getting to know you in the time we had together. You’d always tell me I should hurry up with my cleaning so I could go enjoy my day. Truth was, I was enjoying my day chatting and joking with you and being there to support you. You were one in a million my dear friend. It was an honour to know you.
    Wherever you are, I hope you’re dancing ❤️
    All my love to your family and friends as they say goodbye to you today. I know how much you loved and appreciated them all.
