I met Bev and Jim back in the early 80's in Shreveport La. Ironic that I am here on the day of her passing, She and Jim were my "Shreveport parents" they were my best customers at the Steak and Lobster and I often worked for them helping with oil leases. They treated me as one of their own. Bev kept up with me as long as she could always offering support, encouragement and love. I loved both of them very much...Another Angel in Heaven for sure....she is dancing with Jim and will always be looking down on her family of which she loved so much...
