I met Bev Ryder in 1977. Bev was fun loving, witty, independent, and so intelligent that I often wondered why she wasn’t an attorney. Bev was also one heck of a tennis player. We were on the same team and always won because of our laughter throughout competitions frustrated the other teams to no end. Laughing and great conversations made our relationship grow. Bev’s automobile accident severed her spine and she became disabled over 12 years ago. Bev was an inspiration to all, as she maintained her independence, strength and friendships to the end.
God bless Bev.
