  14. I taught Beth in high school & we were close & she kept in contact as long as she was in the area. She was brilliant & totally delightful! I was very fond of Beth! We lost contact, I guess, when she moved to Wisconsin. I do so hope she & Tracy were happy & she was no longer frustrated. I am sooo saddened by her death – she was a good soul!!!! I cared a great deal for her!!!

  15. Beth helped my mom raise me from a very small toddler ( not sure how old , I’m going to guess age 3) till I was a couple of months shy of turning 10 I wanna say . She played a very big part in my life , I learned how to bowl and shoot pool from her , I even done bowling leagues and won first place my first year all while being the youngest to compete. To me she was my step mom . Losing her has truly tore me up. We hadn’t seen one another face to face since I was a kid , but we kept in touch on the phone and through Facebook. I’m so sorry for your lose Tracy , I’m glad she had you all these years. She needed some one to always lean on bc we all know she was the one who was there for who ever to lean on . I love ya . Don’t be a stranger plz. Love tha kiddo
