So sorry for your loss. Met when I played cards on Tuesdays. Very competitive but very nice. Now I bet she has a deck of cards with her in heaven.

Mel and I have been friends for over 40 year and I am so sorry for the loss of your Mom. Mrs Bev was always quick to give advice, there are two things that I will never ever forget about Mrs Bev, One day she scolded me for only putting 5 dollars of gas in my car which probably happened over 30 years ago, she was serious! Only she knows the story but it was something that we laughed about for years. Another was when she gave Mel and I advice, telling us girls y'all need to say it out loud and you won't second guess yourself. To the whole Ingraffia family, I am so sorry for your loss. And am so sorry Stevie and I cannot be there with y'all. Mel is my friend but more like a sister and I always felt like I was a part of the family.
