We lost a friend in the last week of February 1998. Beth though not a member of AscendingMoon was a friend and supporter to us. She lived her life giving and generous to many. She was a fine mother and truly devoted sister. We do not lose her friendship and love now that she is gone, but live and learn from it for all eternity.
