A Courage Remembered: Bev’s Story Conclusion

The autobiography concludes with the account shared in Part 12. As it was, my parents decided not to move forward with the tracheotomy. In that, they chose the freedom that was available to her as a wheelchair-bound-quadriplegic. Simply, she had the heart of a lion and the wisdom and humility to draw on the immeasurable strength of Christ every moment of her life. After the illness accounted in Part 12 there was a margin of recovery. It was not for a couple years after that time that she passed. In the end she died from pneumonia on November 7th, 1998 as her system was too weak to handle the disease. In that, the strength in her legacy will live forever in the hearts of her family members and friends.

It was a special joy and experience to transcribe and share my Mother’s story in her own words. I learned so much about her and our family. I am deeply thankful for the person God created her to be. I look forward to the full restoration of the Kingdom of God on earth wherein all things will be transformed and redeemed to the glory of Christ and our eternal family will walk together in the perfection of shalom love.

  1. Lindsay, I first met your mom about 1970, when I started dating your Uncle Bruce. The last time I saw her was at her dad’s funeral (I meet you and your sister then, to, but you wouldn’t remember). I knew a little of her health problems from Bruce, and knew when you lost her (and Greg), but had no idea of all she went through, and the grace with which she endured it. Even after reading this, though, I’ll always think of her as very lively, happy, always smiling young woman I once knew. Thank you for sharing her story.
