The world we live in has always had a lot of uncertainly, but then someone comes into your life that makes everything better and brighter. For almost 40 years I had heaven on earth being married to Bev, without fanfare or expecting anything in return, Bev just knew which of my buttons to push and when to push it.  Bev was an animal lover; the picture shows her with her much-loved Boxer “Clyde” who recently lived to a very old age for Boxers thanks to Bev’s love and affection.  Clyde was also smart; whenever he did something wrong he went straight to Bev because she was his safe haven and Bev would always had a dozen reasons to justify whatever Clyde had done.  I trust that she will once again have Clyde at her side.


I cannot put into words how much I miss Beverly, her beautiful face, her voiceher laugh and her annoying little habits.  I would give everything to experience just one of those habits today.


Bev called me Big Al, so I will end with love from………..


Big Al


Jean (mother)


Beverly was a typical daughter, I suppose, and we weathered the usual mother - daughter differences of opinion as she grew up. But when she became a grown woman, married and working, our relationship gradually changed. There were more phone calls, some with real two-way thought exchanges; shopping and eating out together became routine; and we never missed the Christmas Craft Sales.


Then one day as we were driving down Fowler Avenue, laughing at silly punch lines from a "What if...?" sheet she had brought home from the office, Beverly said, "You know, Mom, you are my best friend!" That made my day. Needless to say, I will miss Beverly in more ways than I want to think about right now.



Beverly Griffiths is my little sister...always has been and always will be.  I love her dearly and fondly remember so many times we spent together and with the rest of our family.  When we were young ladies, she was quite the jokester. You could always count on getting a laugh when she would get into that frivolous mood.  And laugh we would!  She loved silly jokes and clever word puns and you name it.  She used to laugh all the time and it was wonderful to share her joy. Then we got older and had to deal with real life situations and the laughter began to fall away, slowly.  Then cancer hit our little family three times and began taking lives and the laughter pretty much disappeared. 


I am certain that Beverly is now laughing with the angels and praising the Lord for His marvelous goodness.  There is unending joy where she is now, and that may be even better than laughter.  Hope to find out in time myself.

I love you baby girl. 

You are one of a kind and one in a million!



All my love for all eternity,

What an amazing honour to have had Aunty Bev in our lives. Although distance separated us, Bev welcomed us into her life with open arms. Ash, Ellie & Blake met Aunty Bev for the first time in 2010 when we made our first trip to Orlando. From the moment she met them she embraced them like she had always had them in her life. When we visited Bev enjoyed just being with us whether it was taking us shopping or just sitting on the lounge and talking about anything and everything. Bev took note of all the little things that were said or spoken about and would show this in the little gifts she would produce, from the healthy snacks that we commented on to the beautiful scarves and jacket that she gave the girls when they mentioned they looked pretty on her. Bev was so loving and easy going that we just picked up from where we left off from our last visit. I am so grateful that I got the chance to see Bev in January and reconnect with this beautiful woman. Rest in peace Aunty Bev and soar high with the Angels. We love you.

May the Lord continue to comfort you, Allen, Jean and Pam, as only he can. Beverly was a faithful, treasured friend and a joy to know. I miss lunching with her, and her gentleness and kindness and her lilting, musical voice. Never once did I hear her make a critical comment about anyone; she was amazing in her positive attitude. Her faith in the midst of physical suffering was an inspiration. Surely she has gone from glory to glory

Praying for Allan, Beverly’s Mom and sister Pam
during this difficult time. I was very shocked to
hear of Beverly’s passing today, as I have not spoken
to her in quite a while. She was a very strong Christian
lady, so there is no doubt that she is healed and now
face-to-face with her Lord and Savior. Rest in Peace

Dear Allan & Family,
It was such a shock to hear that Beverly was so sick an that she passed away just a few days later.
Beverly was such a sweet soft spoken lady. I only knew her a few short years but she made an impact on my life. I so enjoyed our going to lunch at Chili's with our friend Sandy Plumer and then Beverly and I met for breakfast at First Watch as well. We laughed and cried together and I always felt comfortable with her expressing my deepest thoughts. She was always there for me and was a blessing to me. She is missed a lot.
My thoughts and prayers are with Allan, her mom and sister. God Bless.
