Bev and I shared many adventures and fun times together. She was someone I truly admired and it was my privilege to share her friendship.
I remember on several occasions racing the boat van through the hills and jungles of Costa Rica trying to get to the next take-out before the rafts and kayaks got there so we could sit on the river bank and enjoy a "cerveza" before the work started again. We only got lost or stuck a few times and I'm sure the locals had some great laughs over our broken Spanglish and sign language while trying to find our way.
There was the year of the"giant sunflower harvest", (many happy birds that winter on the farm) and the year of the" great gourd harvest." You may have seen some of Bev's prize winning gourd art at the fair.
She had a very curious mind and loved to read, but Bev didn't just read, she dissected a book.There would be underlining on about every page with margins filled with questions, quotations, musings and information, plus she would have a stack of reference material on the side. We even took road trips to check out some of the people and places she had read about from the surrounding KY and OH area. We'd pack a lunch, grab a map, put on our favorite ball caps and hit the road for a day or two. Exploring caves, hiking trails, visiting historical sights and museums or just sitting by some river trying to solve all the world's problems. We never succeeded but we sure had a lot of fun trying.
Bevi will be dearly missed.
