|Let the memory of Bev be with us forever|
This memorial website was created in the memory of our loved one, Beverly Jean (Robinette) Cockrell. Bev passed away in her home on November 6, 2010 after a long illness. There will be a celebration of her life and Mass of Christian Burial at 10 a.m., Saturday, November 13, at Holy Trinity Catholic Church, 407 Cherry Street, Weston, Missouri, with Rev. Charles Rowe as celebrant. Following mass, the family will receive friends at the Parish Hall.
"Happy Birthday Dear Bev. I think of you all the time and miss you so very much!! Always have and always will love you my Dear Friend!"
Time has not diminished how much I miss you and your wise counsel. I know you are in a better place and we will meet again. Love you.
You know my heart better than I do so you also know it misses you everyday. Someday, I will hug you again. I feel you watching over me always. A sister who did and always will cherish the time we had together. Barb"
Thinking of you with a tear in my eye today. I still miss you so much - all the fun we had together, all the talks we had, all the good advice you gave me over the years. Love you, my friend."
"Bev - I thought I left a tribute yesterday, but I don't see it, so will write again. I still think of you every day. Losing a best friend is impossibly difficulty. I have golf pictures of us all around my den and will always remember the great times we had together. See you again some day, my friend."
"You would have been 66 today. We miss you so much and think about you everyday! We love you so much and can't wait to see you again in heaven!"
"Bev.....our memories live on forever in our hearts. Love and miss you you so very much......Happy Birthday my Dear Friend!"
"Bev, today is another day we all cherish the memories of the many birthdays we shared. I miss you."
"Bev, I still miss you very much but am grateful for the memories of a wonderful friendship. So many of us share that friendship and it keeps us going. Thank you for watching over us. Love you!"
I still miss you like crazy. The last picture that was taken of the two of us remains on my mousepad and I think of you every day."
"We miss you today and everyday. We think of you always and we love you forever!"
"Bev, as I said on your Birthday, there are no words to express how much I love and miss you. Just want to thank you for the wonderful memories of our friendship. You will forever live in my heart. Love you Bev.....Jo"
Happy Birthday. Today you and I are the same age! Still can't visit this site without falling apart. I guess it will always be that way. When we celebrate mom's birthday we will all have a drink to celebrate you and all the joy you gave to us. I love and miss you so terribly much. Barb"
"Happy Birthday Dee!!! On Saturday night we are having birthday party for Mom's 89th birthday. Barb will be home and I know you and Dad and Joe will be there too! Love you so much and miss you so terribly much.. LOVE YOU!!!!"
"Oh Bev, I miss you so much. There is such a hole in my heart but I feel your guidance everyday. I hope you're happy beyond measure."
"Bev.....there are no word that can express how much I love and miss you! It was with you that I learned what true friendship is and for that my Dear Friend you will forever be in my heart, Happy Birthday Bev,,,,I love you, Jo"
It has been such a hard day today. Such an overwhelming sense of emptiness without you in my life. Send a little extra love today !! I promise to pass it on!!"
"Miss you my friend but I know you know that! I am so thankful for your friendship which I still hold dear and knowing you are just a whisper away!"
"Not a day goes by that we are not thinking about you. Even though it's been 3 years to the day that you passed, we miss you more than ever. The boys are getting so big now and we talk about how you are an angel in heaven now with Jesus and God the Father. We can't wait to see you again one day and we love you more than you'll ever know!"
It seems like I just did this but it has been another year. That makes three now that you have been gone. It never gets easier and it never hurts less. Thank you for watching over me. You have sent me good things and protected me from the bad. In death, as you did in life, you are always there for me. I love you and miss you so much. Barb"
Since I know you are with them . . . please give Dad and Joe a hug too! Wish I could say it was getting better but then you would know that wasn't true. I haven't stopped crying inside since Saturday November 6th, 2010 at 8:35 pm. What I would give to sit and talk about everything & nothing. HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I LOVE YOU!!!"
Happy Birthday, sister. Every year I think this should get easier but here I am again and I still miss you like it was yesterday that you left. You are always with me. I tell you the things changing in my life and although I know you hear me, I wish I could hear your voice.
give my love to Dad and Joe. Until I see you again, Love"
"Bev, Thinking of you on your Birthday... We sure miss you here at the office. Over the 14 years that you worked here, you taught me so much about patience, not speaking ill of others and kindness. I think of you often and smile... Kirk"
"Bev, I can't believe it has been two years. I think of you every day. I have a picture that was taken on your last trip to Florida of the two of us and it is on my mousepad. I will never not miss you. Thank you for being such a wonderful part of my life."
Friends who touch our lives never really leave. The memories continue as you have gone to live with the Lord. I always loved your laugh and your distinct voice. I am so happy that we were able to connect after so many years. You are loved and missed. Peace Forever! Diane"
"I remember my wedding when you sang and you were not to sing the "Ave Marie" with orders from our parish priest. But you sang it anyway!! Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Would you please say hello to my husband Chuck -- both of you can watch over me."
"Jo, Juan & I took you with us to the top of lake Tahoe mountains today. We know you saw the sights with us. We couldn't see the golf course but know you could. Here's to you. We love you!"
"Just checking in with you. Wow, the Navy Seals are kicking major butt and I'm sure you're following all this as am I. You have to be so proud of Joe and I know he brings you great joy. Thank you for taking such good care of us. Loving and missing you everyday."
Happy Birthday. As always today we would be the same age. For a month we were like twin sisters. I wish I could say that time makes it easier to not have you near but it does'nt. That empty space is still there and always with me. I know you are watching over me still as I can feel your guidance and protection. To you all my love."
"It can't be a year and still hurt so bad. I'm sure it was just a couple weeks ago I said goodbye. Everyday I hear your last words to me "I love you Rose" and then I say thank you God for keeping the sound of your voice and the warmth of your love so alive in me. I love you Dee!"
"Bev, I am so glad that you are watching over me daily. There's not a day goes by that I do not think of you and remember all the times we shared together. I will always love you."
"We love you so much and we miss and think about you everyday. We know that you are watching over and protecting us. You will forever be in our hearts."
"Bev, you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. I'm sure they miss you dearly. This last year has been a difficult one for the Robinette family. Who would have imagined that your brother Joe would also be with you and Arnie now. God bless all of you.
"Thinking of you and past good memories..."
"Bev, I think of you every day. My den walls are lined with pictures of all the good times we had together. You were my confidante, counselor and one of the best friends I have ever had."
"I so miss you and love you mom that words just don't convey. I hope you are at peace with The Lord ."
I miss you everyday. I so wish I could talk to you. My best friend forever.
I love you so much. Your sister, Barb"
"Bev I just learned about your death. I am so sorry for your family. I cant imagin how much they miss you. I will remember you as a very fun lady with good looking kids and a very hard working husband. I hope I see you in heaven and you can teach me to play golf. Love to you all Jeannie"
"Dee, I will still be talking to you. For 57 years you have always listened and I know you still will. I will still feel how much you love me and I will be looking forward to seeing you again just like each time over all these years. Most of all, as I know you would have done for me, I will take all this love for you and give it to those you loved so very much but had to leave too soon."
"I am so very thankful we got to come see you when we did, that I got to share one of your good days; I can still see your smile, hear your laugh. While my heart aches, for myself and especially for your family, I am thankful your pain has ended, that you are at peace, held in God’s loving hands and surrounded by love. I hope Jeff & Connie were there with your Dad to greet you. Love you, Kelly"
"You were one of the strongest, most unflappable women I've ever known and I have always admired not only your warmth and sense of humor, but your spirit, your honesty, your strength of character & unwavering sense of self (and often courage) in the midst of the familial chaos in which we can so often lose ourselves. :) You were truly an inspiration - to ALL who knew you."
"Bev, for so long, you’ve been the heartbeat of this amazingly boisterous, warm, loving, wacky and outspoken family, and you will be dearly missed. Your essence - your spirit - however, lives on so strongly & are so readily apparent in all of your family, whose lives you’ve touched, influenced & enriched, that one can’t help but feel your presence, your spirit in each & every interaction with them"
"Grandma i miss you so much. It makes me so sad to have you out of my life, but its better that your out of your pain. Atleast ill meet up with you in heaven one day. I love you very much.- Your grand-daughter and friend Gena. <3"
"Hi Momma...I love you so very much ! I can't imagine anyone having a better mom than you. You always knew what to say and you always believed in me and encouraged me. It was because of you I am going back to school and officiating volleyball. I have so many great memories of Park Hill,Peggy Hannah and Marlene Deister & you on booster club.I will have to leave many tributes - miss you terribly."
"Bev the memory I cherish is the her singing at my wedding. She was a good friend in school and lived life to the fullest. Bev will be missed by many..."
""Bev- Always laughing and enjoying life. I remember your dating years with Norm. You both made me smile with all the fun and craziness of those days. What a full life you led. Many you rest in peace.""
"What a wonderful tribute - Bev sounds like she was an extraordinary person and enriched the lives of everyone who met her. God's peace and comfort to her family and friends.
Carol and Randy Knipp - neighbors of Kyle and Sarah"
"Bev - I will cherish and miss the 15+ years that you touched my life with. A dedicated employee, but so much more... A true friend with an unwavering moral compass. I have been so blessed to have you be part of my life. Our talks, your smiles and laughter will be with me forever!"
"God bless the Cockrell family. Bev was loved by so many and she touched so many lives. Even though time and space has separated us, Norm and Bev have always been good friends. In Happier Days, they were my "Joanie and Chachi". He was this cute guy with a little bit of naughty, and she was this "All American Girl" who came from a wonderful family. And thats the way I will always remember her."
"You are a very caring person who loved your family and friends so very much! What a wonderful legacy! We didn't get to see each other as our families grew but when we did get together it was like there was no time that elapsed---we always had that bond. Bev you were such a good listener too--we always tried to figure things out. We will miss you! Love you! Fred and Susie and family"
"Bev- who will we turn to for advice and encouraggement now? You will be sorely missed. Now, I finally don't have to compete against you on the golf course; I will always play with your spirit within me. I love you, girl, and will always remember those wonderful times we shared. You can finally play golf without pain. Enjoy your peace."
"Bev - I don't know where to start. You have been one of the best friends I ever had. We shared so much of our lives together and had so much fun playing golf, cards and taking vacations together. I feel like there is a big hole in my life. I will remember our last visit, about a year ago at Cracker Barrel. I know you are in a better place now but we will all miss you."
"Bev - a little bit is better than nada - sometimes you want the whole enchilada!! Thunder storms, the Ground Round and friends - AND WE WON!! I will always treasure the many hours we spent in your car going to and from tournaments..the New York Times crossword puzzle, singing to the Everly Brothers and all the talks and laughs we had! I will love you and miss you always!"
This is hard to believe.
Just few years ago I was so fortunate to hear a familiar voice and a laugh that brought memories of over 40 years ago! How could I forget - I walked over to you and knew instantly that it was DEE! We shared a hug, memories, let's get together with Barb and off we went to play in a golf tournament. Laugh forever - Peace forever!"
"Bev - though I never got to know you well, I do know this: you were a wonderful mother who raised THE MOST FUN TWIN BOYS I've ever known! They will miss you dearly, I'm certain, but I'm sure they are happy you get to golf now 12 months out of the year. I'm so sorry for your loss Kyle and Jesse. XOXO"
"Bev- DeDe...I will always remember growing up and being around you and your family back in the days when you lived in Erdmannville...All of us cousins running around together...No one messed with DeDe...I love your laugh, your singing...I know that you are now with your dad...You will be so greatly missed but am glad that you are no longer in pain...Love Ya"
"Bev - You've always been upbeat, fun-loving, a kind and caring person to others, and someone everyone looked up to and trusted. I will always have fond memories of the times we shared at family gatherings...Rosemary busy cooking in the kitchen, Arnie dozing in the chair, children everywhere, and of course, the hours and hours we spent playing cards. You were a great sister-in-law. Love, Sheila"
"Bev - I still can't accept this and don't know if I ever will. I'm remembering the last time I saw you. You were feeling quite well that day and very optimistic with lots of your beautiful smiles. I will probably laugh everytime I think about the talks about our kids. Love you so much"
"Bev---I want to thank you for being such an honest and loving friend to me. There's really not much about our lives that we haven't shared with each other. I will never play golf again without thinking of you. Like you said in an email that you sent me....there are no words to decribe how much I love you. You taught me so much. I will miss you, but I know you are at peace now! Love ya woman!"
"Bev, I love you and I will miss you very much. You were so kind to me and such a great mother and grandmother to all of us. I love the way you were always up for some fun and could always make me laugh. RIP"
"I always called you Mom even though we were not blood related, you felt like a Mother to me. I will dearly miss our talks and sharing stories about the boys. You are a wonderful and amazing person in every way and we will all truly miss you. I am so thankful you are no longer in any pain and that you are at peace now and we will see you again someday. I love you so very, very much Mom."
"Bev- You have been an inspiration, a kind and loving mother,and grandmother. I will always cherish all the fond memories that have been made over the years. Thank you for all the love, support and wisdom that you shared.I miss you and love you very much."
