Bev and I met in May of 1979 and I worked with her for only one year at the Mitchell Area Alcohol Drug Center but we remained friends through the years. Bev was not only a kind and compassionate person - she was a hoot to be around. I am smiling, thinking of her laugh, her voice, her smile. I am so very sorry for the Phillips family’s loss.
