I'm very sorry to hear of Bev's passing. I worked with her at Denny's for 11 years. She was such a kind and caring person. I remember all the homemade goodies she would bring for us on the weekends. Chicken and noodles and banana bread were a couple favorites.
I left Denny's in 2013 and have thought of her often since then. I wish I had had the opportunity to visit with her over these last few years. She will be dearly missed.
