Our deepest condolences.
My Sister had written this poem for such a time like this.

When I Go Away
When I go away; Will you remember me,
The one who brought forth many wonderful colors of life?
There within you: the question lies unanswered: to open a book of life. To span the possibilities, of finding.
I'm not really away; but live within the walls of your mind, which has many rooms to stay.
I will be there to give you smiles and joy of memories I left you. Of Good Thoughts.
I will never go away; As Long As You Remember....

The description of Beth by her wonderful husband Alan, reminds us that Beth was a quiet, loving, caring and beautiful individual. This is spot on. Beth was a faithful servant at Blessed Trinity's 8:30 Sunday morning Mass. Beth was a Eucharistic Minister and performed this blessed vocation seriously and regularly. When I received Holy Communion from Beth, it was presented with love, joy and a smile. She was always complimentary to the members of the music ministry at Blessed Trinity. We love Beth and will all miss her very much.
