Hello Fort Bend Friends, EXECUTIVE PUBLISHERS Michael & Lisa Fredrickson
It is with great sorrow that I say goodbye to my mother-in-law Beverly Carter. Not only was she a great mom-in-law, she was an awesome grandmother to my children. Our readers may have known her as the lady who had a very strong opinion and tried to persuade public opinion through her weekly column Bev’s Burner, but we, her family, knew her as the generous, funloving person that she truly was. She was our BB. She never wanted to miss a family party or one of the children’s events at school, and so, it is with great joy that I choose to remember her. Michael and I would like to express our sincere thanks to the community for their outpouring of support, prayers and condolences during this difficult time. We’ve heard so many wonderful stories from friends and readers, and they have been a source of great comfort and joy to us. We appreciate you, and we will see you all around the Bend. Stay focused, Lisa Fredrickson
