    To Catherine and all the Beavers. I wish God’s blessings on your family. I am very sad for you. Kenneth was a prize. But what a wonderful life he lived. And a long one,too. Catherine, you have your own angel in heaven looking out for you. Love to all of you and especially my buddy, Catherine

    Ken I am so sorry to hear about your Dad. I know it's hard to see them go but comforting to know that they are with Jesus and no longer sick. I pray for comfort for you and your family.

    I am so sorry to hear of Mr. Beavers passing. He is in so much of my childhood memories... I was just thinking about the little wooden boats he would make for us kids to float in the street when it would rain...i will always remember him with much fondness.
