"What can I say about Ms. Vera that hasn't already been shared? Although we only had the pleasure of being in her presence a few times, Tony and I loved her dearly! She brought such a gentle, kind spirit into the room wherever she was.  She loved everyone--and was truly a great (funny) sports fan! We loved her--and laughed with her. Rest in God's presence, Ms. Vera. We'll see you soon!"

"We are seated in heavenly places so says the Word of God.   Looking at the photo of Mother Beard, I can assure you that she is where she has always been,in the presence of her LORD. "He shall wipe away all tears."  Your tears are just Mom's entrance into the invisible incorruptible grace of God.  Thanking God for her life which provided me with more sisters.  Prayers, hugs and love."

"I never had the opportunity to meet Mrs. Beard, but from the great tributes I have read here and meeting Sima and knowing Andrea, I can tell she was a great woman in the Lord. I believe when a person is full of the Lord and strength and courage it flows down to their children. To the family may God richly bless you, you have my prayers and sympathy...Much Love"
