Beth had so many qualities I admired: physical beauty, a sharp mind, and a loving thoughtful heart. I am so grateful to have been a fellow “preacher’s kid” and friend. So many of us are reeling from the sudden loss of our dear friend and sister Beth. Thankful that our shared faith promises we will see each other again. May her spirit be enveloped in Love. May we endeavor to keep her memory from fading. May all who mourn be comforted. May God be praised for each year she was in our lives. Shalom, dear Beth.

Beth was always very sweet. I remember her well at Southlawn Assembly. I remember one time when we went to a C A Rally in Lubbock. We were riding in my cousin, Jeff Thomason's car. Coming back, we hit bad weather. She stayed very calm through the whole ordeal.
She will be missed. My prayers go out to here family.
