Amy and family! We are so sorry for the loss of your Grandma! I found this poem and thought it might be of some comfort to you.
God Saw You…
by Adam Males
God saw you getting tired,
When a cure was not to be.
So He wrapped his arms around you,
and whispered, “Come to me”.
You didn’t deserve what you went through,
So He gave you rest.
God’s garden must be beautiful,
He only takes the best
And when I saw you sleeping,
So peaceful and free from pain
I could not wish you back
To suffer that again.

Dear Chris and family,
My deepest sympathy to you in the loss of your mother. I will always remember our Daily Press group shopping trip to Oshkosh and your mom teaching me about the lost Indian tribe…the Fugawe tribe. We laughed so hard that weekend, I think we all had stomach aches. God bless and give you all peace and strength.
Chris, Pat and family
Our condolences go out to you in your time of loss. Your mom was a great person. I didn’t know her well but she was always sweet to me. Our thoughts and prayers to you all.

You have my deepest sympathy with the loss of your mom.
Just thinking back to the days when we all worked at the Daily Press it brings a smile to my face.
You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.

Sending you all, Love, Prayers and Healing.
Bev was like a second mother to me. She was a big reason why MY mother and myself grew so much closer together – and for that alone, I will always be grateful. You see Bev is the mother of my best friend Christine. I have had the pleasure of having both of these dear women in my life for over 35 years making my world so much richer and fuller than it would have been without them in it. It was because of you that my mom accompanied me on my MANY trips to Escanaba. In between casino runs we would hold marathon poker games. Oh how we laughed!! Beverly I will carry you in my heart for the rest of my life and hold dear the “precious” memories and smiles you you’ve given me. I will miss you mom.
Grandmother to me, Great Grandmother to my sons, Zak and Ashton, Beverly Provo will be missed dearly. Even though the sun is shining, it doesn’t seem quite as bright. It breaks my heart that such a great person was taken so quickly. Grandma Provo, as we called her, will be loved and remembered by us forever.
Other mom (chris) and the rest of the family,
I wish we could be home during this rough time. You are in my thoughts and prayers. I love you guys and hang in there you can call whenever you need to.
