"Beth Ann and Carlie walked past my house almost daily when the weather was nice. She was always so sweet and kind. I had thought of her a few days before she passed away. I always looked forward to our conversations. She will be missed!!!"

"I met Beth Ann while working at Kohl's warehouse in 2010 she was a joy always smiling she also helped me become a member of the Moose she did love to dance. She came into my life at a very low point in my life we spent many hours talking on the phone she had a very positive effect on me. May she rest in peace and God Bless her family."

"I will always remember that smile Beth Ann had. I met her years ago in Trenton and we became friends. She came out to many of my karaoke shows. She always had a smile and a kind word for everyone. You will be missed Beth Ann. Rest in peace. "

"When someone you love dies, it is comforting to know that you can reach out to the "Hearer of prayer" (Psalm 65:2). God can and will help you because "He cares for you" (1 Peter 5:7). The help you will receive from God during this difficult time will make a difference. While it does not eliminate the pain, it makes it easier to bear. My condolences to family of BethAnn. "
