A Sad Day

I just heard of the passing of a dear blogging buddy, Beverly of Beverly's Back Porch.



Up until just a few short weeks ago, I had no idea that Bev  had had a battle with cancer.  Every day you could count on a post from her, with a really delicious recipe, sometimes two or three in one day.  The entire summer she was busy canning farm-fresh produce from her brother's yard.  Her energy level amazed me.



On Sunday, Bev would do a post called Saints & Scriptures.  I was immediately hooked on having "breakfast with Bev" Sunday mornings.  So many of her weekly posts really hit home for me, and I would tease her and say she was writing these just for me.  

Her last project was baking for her church's festival.  She was only able to be there for an hour or so.

I have no more words, she was an inspiring lady, a fabulous country cook with a zest for life, and a fighter.  She passed in her own bed, surrounded with fur babies and family.  

Rest in peace, Beverly, you will be missed.

  3. Oh how sobering... I am sorry about this loss. I just visited there thinking that I knew her, too. Alas, I did not, but I can tell that I would've enjoyed knowing her. I hope that her blog will continue to bless you, Barbara, and the joy of having had your life intersect with your own. That last post was amazing.

  10. i am glad that you enjoyed her sunday scriptures! though bev and i were like peas and carrots, she was classically a christian, i am not. we excepted our differences totally and never let that bother us. she was such a huge amount of energy in a very small bottle. i will never think of replacing her, she can't be replaced. i will never stop missing her. we challenged each other which is one of the best thing friends can do.
