Message: A good friend knows all your best stories; a best friend has been there to live them with you. Beth was that kind of best friend since early ‘70’s when we met in Dallas. Truly a beautiful person and beautiful soul. She had an infectious laugh and could light up a room with her beauty. No matter how long it had been since we last connected – it was like we had never been apart – sharing memories and our latest experiences. Beth had a zest for life that was inspirational and a heart of gold. She had a passion and love for her plants, pets, collections, and family home. She was happiest after moving back to her family home – her roots. My love, sympathy, and prayers go out to Mrs. Avis, Steve, Kathy, and Sterling. Beth is pain free in Heaven today.
