    I worked with Beth for many years— not as her manager, but as her co-worker ! Rarely are we blessed to meet someone that touches our heart—Beth was that person to me ! Mike is the only one of her children that I knew, but truly a reflection of her kind spirit ! Rest in pease my friend! It was my honor to have known you ! 😘

    It is with great sorrow that i heard of Beth’s passing. We have not been in touch for quite a few years. But I have often wondered how she was doing. My Prayers are with her children and grandchildren as they travel this road of grief. Smile often children and know that Beth would not want you to be sad that she is gone but happy that she is no longer in pain and resting in the arms of Jesus.

    I was honored to have the privilege to take care of Ms. Beth. Beth and I, over the years developed a great friendship that grew to a deep love for one another, especially in the last few months. Beth was a one of a kind lady. She had a strong self will about her, but with that she had a great love for you her family and a commitment to them. As I cared for her I watched that demonstration of love and commitment shine through her two sons Phillip and Mike as they loved and cared for their mom the best they could. Their commitment for her was genuine and at the times when she needed them the most they put her above everything else. We had many conversations about Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior and today her family can take comfort in knowing that she is in the presence of God. Beth was able to take peace and comfort with her as well knowing that her family would carry on her values, her standards, and her strength, but most importantly her love for God in raising their families. All the days that I was privileged to take care of Beth were special to me as they were to her. I feel she loved me as I loved her, the last few days of her life I will treasure in my heart forever. Thank you to the Castleberry family whom I feel is now my family too for trusting your mom into my care! I believe with all my heart that God placed me there, for He knows all things and His timing is always perfect. In our life He will place that special person that you need! Let’s not grieve today the loss of Beth, but celebrate her life. Her strength is an example for us all.

      Thank you, Ms. Leslee for your loving care of my favorite aunt. This is from Jennifer Dorsey Ruple. I’m Fred’s daughter. She and my father were very close.
      I offered at one point to come down from Arkansas and with her typical independence; Aunt Beth assured me she was well attended by her sons, my dear 1st cousins, Mike & Philip. She never mentioned you. Which is why I reach out to you. Thank you, ma’am from the bottom of my heart. It cheered me to learn she was so well taken care of by someone like you. You share our family values and I know that was of great importance to my aunt.
      Again, thank you for your kind service and true friendship to one of my favorite people in the world. I know you miss her like we do . God bless & keep you . Thanks.
      Sincerely, Jennifer Dorsey Ruple
