I am so sorry to see the passing of my neighbor Bev. Peter and I really enjoyed having her live across the street. It was our pleasure to let her into our home during thunderstorms of which she was terrified of. Rest in peace. Our thoughts are with all family members.

I'm not sure if anyone will see this as it may be too late, but I was a friend of Bev's from Brookdale in Smithfield. I met Bev from my visits with my grandmother. She would always be sitting in the common area all done up and sassy as ever.
I was drawn to Bev because she resembled a dear aunt of mine that has long since passed. I would make a point to wheel Bev over to where everyone was talking, and she was always making witty remarks. When I knew I was going to visit my Grandma, I would always make a stop to see Bev first.
When I got my puppy, Wolfie, I made sure to go right to her room to show her. She really loved when I brought him in for a visit. One of the last times I saw her, she wasn't doing very well at all. I had Wolfie with me, so I put him on her lap and she put her arms around him and hugged him.
I left a note about Bev in her room hoping someone would find it. I just want her family to know that she was such a special lady, and that I enjoyed the times I spent with her. She made visiting a not-so-fun place, that much better for me. It saddens me to hear of her passing knowing I didn't get to visit her one last time, but I know she is somewhere amazing, and at peace.
I hope this reaches someone in her family.
sending love
Lauren Andreozzi
