    Please accept my sincere condolences for your loss.
    May the peace of God that surpasses all understanding guard your hearts and your mental powers by means of Christ Jesus.” (Phil. 4:7) May the hope of a resurrection right here on a restored earth bring you comfort. (John 5:28, 29) Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice 29 and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life) Psalm 37:11, 29) But the meek will possess the earth, And they will find exquisite delight in the abundance of peace. The righteous will possess the earth, And they will live forever on it.

    My deepest sympathy

    So sorry to hear of Bev’s passing. I met Bev and Cara in the mid-80’s, first in Kansas, then moved to Eugene, OR. Prayers for Bev’s family and peace to your hearts!

    I don’t know what to say except that I love you so much and I can’t believe you’re gone. What a wonderful person and life you had! I just wish I had met you earlier in my life so I could’ve experienced some of the great things that your life encompassed. I am forever changed for knowing you and losing you too soon.

    I am so sorry, Cara and family, for Bev’s sudden passing. She was a fierce and independent woman and she has given that gift to Cara. She will watch over you all in the peaceful garden. May your memories of time with her afford you comfort now. May your memories be full of laughter and joy.

    Cara, we love you and mourn with you.

    I was the designated driver for my friend Cathy Wagner who had an outpatient eye procedure and needed a driver. She left the clinic with a patient wristband and we went to the Roost on Mass for breakfast.

    A short while later, in came two ladies. One turned out to be Bev, also sporting a patient wristband. Cathy and Bev hit it off right away, asking which hospital they had escaped from.

    Outgoing, never a stranger, at ease with the world. That was the impression she left me with. That was my only contact, less than a minute, with Bev. But it’s lasted the last two years and will stay with me forever.

    Dear Betty and family. Kay and I were so sorry to learn of Bev’s passing. Just wanted you to know we have been thinking of you and keeping you in our prayers. Betty if we can do anything to help, just let us know. Linda

    Oh, Betty, I am so sorry for your loss.
    There were 7 children in my family. When the 3rd child passed away l, my mother just sobbed saying it isn’t supposed to be this way…your children are supposed to live longer than their parents. I will never forget that statement. My mother lived to be 93 and did not have to see another child of hers die before she did.
    I will pray for comfort and peace for you and your family.
    Love you dear.

    Cara, I was so sorry to hear of Bev’s passing. I met her in Salina in the early 1980’s, and she used to talk about you a lot and laugh. It was clear you meant a lot to her. I am sorry I am unable to be there for the service, as I live in Wichita, and am without transportation. God bless you always, Emily Pyle.

    Dear Cara,
    Heartfelt condolences to you , Dear One. I did not get the pleasure of knowing your mom but I can see she was wonderful and she lived a full life and she loved you so very much.

    I am sad with you… A kayak trip is in order to honor her – sad we didn’t get to go together, as that is what started our friendship (the discussion of the love of kayaking). It just feels too soon!! But I believe folks leave when they are ready to leave. The timing is sad for us, but perhaps makes since for her soul’s journey??

  12. J. Chambers says:

    Dear family and loved ones, I was sorry to read about the passing of Ms. Schuster. Please accept my sincere condolences for your loss. It has helped me and many others to know that the Bible promises that soon God “will swallow up death forever” (Isaiah 25:8) and that He will bring about a resurrection of our dear loved ones (John 5 : 28, 29) . May “the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort,” comfort you during your time of sadness (2 Corinthians 1: 3).
