    To the entire McDonough family, you are in my thoughts and prayers. Bev was a wonderful, kind hearted person, and always a joy to talk with. My foray into politics is because of Bev when she invited me to the City Republican Committee meeting to talk about running for City Council. She was small in stature but had a gentle, but firm way of convincing you to say yes. Her 100th birthday celebration was a great day and tribute to a wonderful person. It was a privilege and honor to have known Bev, she left a positive mark on this world and we are better for having her a part of our lives. Rest In Peace Bev.
