" I have only recently become an acquaintance to Beth Anne and I am deeply saddened and shocked to just now hear of her passing. She currently was attending my cake decorating classes and was such a joy to have. I looked forward to hearing her words of encouragement and praise every week- usually what the student should receive, but in Beth Anne's case she gave just as much as she received ! She was so pleased to be learning new techniques of decorating and was so proud of her creations...she has truly left a sparkle in my life and memory....

"I will always remember Beth Anne as a fourth grade student with a quick mind and a big heart for those in need. This past spring she wrote me a sweet letter using her gift of encouragement during a most challenging time. You all are in my prayers."
"We are so sorry to hear of Beth Anne home calling. Our prayers are with the Hughes Family in this hour of loss.
We have met Beth Anne a few times and we remember her as a vivacious, remarkable person. It is sad to see her depart from our presence here. But we have seen her love for Jesus Christ demonstrated in her life. This is our hope that the Lord will never forsake or leave us, those whom he has loved and given His life for.
No words can express what one feels, at the loss of a loved one. May the Lord grant you His peace in the loss of your dear daughter. It is our hope that Beth Anne is in the loving arms of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Paul reminds us in Romans 8:38-39 -
For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord."

"Greg, sorry to hear of the Loss of our dear friend. I didn't know her in person but was a friend on FB because my sister Debbie Lang asked me to befriend this dear sister in Christ. I have Lyme Disease and suffer a great deal. I hoped that I could listen and be a friend to her. I know she is with Jesus now."
