I was so sorry to hear of Beth's passing. I remember the fun times we had together in City, in classes together, choir, and when Beth and I would hang out together.  Beth and I were roommates in Nursing School and we had many wonderful times together there as well. Unfortunately, I was never able to make contact with Beth after Nursing School graduation. I hoped to see her at our  50th reunion but again, I was unsuccessful in contacting her. May God bring blessings to the family and friends of Beth. She will always hold a special place in my heart. Kathy Coble Shearon.
