    We are certainly going to miss our Uncle Beaver at our family gatherings and at the family reunion. What a beautiful legacy he leaves through his love for his family and friends esp his love for his beautiful wife, my Aunt Lillian and for his children my cousins, Carol,Connie and Ray. I wish you all God’s love, comfort and hope as you journey through this. I love all of you with all my heart…..I hope God remembered to decorate his room in His mansion in Texas A&M maroon..none of that UT orange for him!!

    Dear Lillian and family,
    Carolyn called me about the passing of Beaver. He was a very kind and loving man. You all are so blessed. I am praying for peace and comfort that only God can give.
    Love and prayers,

    Lillian and family,
    I just read about Beaver. I am so sorry for your loss. He always put a smile on my face and he will be greatly missed. I know laughter will be a little less sweeter without Beaver’s “charm”.

    Love to you and your family,
