"Here's flowers for you, Bev.  In my memory we can still have our Easter Egg hunt in the big rocks around the fish pond.   I believe I sent you a birthday card every birthday except one. April 1st, the day you were almost named Beverly Hall because Mom almost didn't make it to the delivery room!"

"I always enjoyed watching my big sister play basketball on her HS varsity team.  I never learned to make a shot like she did, but I shared her love of the game. Thanks for those memories, sis."

"April 1st-Beverly's birthday
I added a photo of us in matching outfits.  The photo was taken when she and Mother came to meet  Bev's new niece, Katherine Dama.  Bev turned 6, 9 days after I was born.  She kept a lot of the birthday cards I had sent her and reminded me several times of the year I didn't get one in the mail!  I didn't miss this year."

"I grew up with Beverly at Troutman High, after which we went our separate ways.  I also remember her as a vivacious girl with a big smile.  In the early 2000s, after she learned of my Barium Springs memoir, Beverly called.  We caught up a bit -- before she told me of her growing life challenges.  I am pleased to have learned here that for Beverly there were good years, good times, and good friends"

"Here's to you Bev for:  the way you played bball in HS, the beautiful jewelry you could wear, the gifts you gave a little sister, your request that all your siblings gather in a group hug after Mom's death because we might not all be together again and we weren't..., shared laughter,  loving to hear about family, and a great memory for directions!"

"On behalf of Forest Park Presbyterian Church I send prayers and condolences to the family Beverly McClure. I personally never knew her but I do know that she was deeply loved by our congregation. Her father was Forest Park's second minister. Many wonderful stories about the McClure family are still fondly told in the life of our congregation. May God bless you in your time of loss."

"I am sad to hear of Bev's death but relieved she is at peace now!  We became "forever friends"in 2nd/3rd grade when her family moved to Barium. She was maid of honor in my wedding. Since her mother's death, I have watched her struggles from afar but yearly visits always revealed her wit and wisdom despite health issues. I treasure my memories of "sister Beverly" -always a friend!!"

"I will always remember fondly the time I spent with Aunt Bev while I was at Davidson.  As others have said, she had a mischevious sense of humor and an infectious laugh.  I was blessed to have known her.  Rest in peace, Aunt B."

"The news of Bev's passing filled me with great sadness.  She was a unique and interesting person.  Others have spoken of her laughter and humor. The sharpness of her mind. Her love of family.  But no one has spoken of her courage.  You can't always conquer every difficulty in life, but I remember her trying.  And I admire her for the boldness of her efforts.  I'm very glad that I knew her."

"I loved my sister-in-law, Beverly McClure. She had a great sense of humor and an infectious laugh. In the more difficult years later in life when she was in declining health, her mind was sharp, her caring for family and friends foremost. In the 1970s she visited us when Emily and I lived in Europe. I'll always cherish those memories."
