Kevin, Robyn, and extended a Beverly Family,
We will miss Donnie’s good sense of humor, his laugh, and him always quoting us a Scripture when we called.
He leaves a great legacy through you, Kevin, and your family, and we know he was so proud of you. He will be sorely missed.
We are sad for us, but glad he finally gets to be with Jesus and with Pat as he said he wanted to be last time we talked.
We do not grieve like those with no hope - we will see him again.
See you soon, save us a seat, Donnie!
We are praying for the whole Beverly family.
God bless you all, we love you,
Eddie & Ruthie Kuvlesky

I've known this great family all my life, Donnie and Pat Beverley were the nicest people around. Don was one of my Dad's closest friend and our families were close Christian families. It's sad to hear that he has passed, but it's also a blessing he and Pat and our Lord and savior are all together again. I will miss you Donnie but since I've known you you have made a great influence on my life. Your family are in my thoughts and prayers, R.I.P. my friend
