  1. To the Wingard family,
    Very sorry to learn of your loss. Bev was a lady with lots of heart, a beautiful smile and very caring RN. I had the privilege of working with her at McKinley Court and was blessed to have her as a friend also.
    May the good memories of your mother and grandmother carry you through this time of loss.
    God bless all,
    Candy J Carroll and family
