Beth and I became friends in high school when she came after attending St. Richards. We had so much fun going to each others homes on Main Street. I will never forget her laugh and how happy she was. My heart is with her family. God Bless them during this time.

Beth was a true friend and I loved seeing her in the past few years. She was happy all the time and never had a bad word for anyone. She will truly be missed.
