Ray, I will always remember my second year at BBC sharing a dorm room with Debbie Clary and Beth. She was always so easy to be around and I enjoyed her friendship. She became engaged to you during that time and I remember her excitement as she made wedding plans. I have been praying for you and your family during this most difficult time. We know for certain that she is with Jesus. We take comfort in knowing this. Sincerely, Robin

Ray was my Sunday School teacher and Beth and I worked in the back with the money and attendance. When my mother passed away in 2009, Beth called me that day and asked what our plans were for after her service. I told her that one of my daughters', Mother-in-Law was bringing a ham to my house. She told me she would take care of the rest of the meal. She came loaded down. When everything was brought in, and she left, she had brought 2 casseroles, rolls, paperware, (which meant, no sink full of dirty dishes) She thought of everything. I have just learned about the dessert she brought as being famous...yes!! Caramel Brownies!! Later when I was preparing a thank you note, I asked her if she did all of this for us, she very shyly said, "Yes." She wanted no recognition; a "thank you" in her eyes was not needed. She was doing this for her Lord and Savior. That was Beth!

Brother Ray, our prayers and hearts go out to you and your family. Though I hadn’t gotten the chance to meet Beth, I did see her loving effect on you. I always think about how lucky we are to have people in our lives, soul mates, that we can mourn so strongly for when they come home to our Heavenly Father. God bless you and your family, Ray. We love you.

To My Israel Brother Ray, We share in this pain with you. Hearing this news sent a ripple of sorrow further than you can ever imagine. Just know that we are hurting with you and are constantly thinking and praying for you and the family. She's resting in the bosom of Jesus now, and I can't wait to meet such a wonderful woman. Take care my brother. With all my heart, Jordan

Dear Ray and Family, No words. “Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words.”- Romans 8:26 (ESV) My heart is breaking for you because I know well that you loved her, and that you were loved by her. Praying for peace and comfort for all of you. God Bless You, Dan and Carolyn Driscoll
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Ray, I can not express the heartache that I had felt over the loss of Beth. All I can tell you in she really had an impact on my life. She always want me to do my best even when my best wasnt the greatest. She never judge, she never looked down on anyone. She always made me see the good in people. Her love for God, and her family always showed in everything she did. Beth, was kind , and loving her smile light up every room she enter. She encouraged and inspired all of us. Ray, if I know you, I know you are going to find a blessing in the tragedy. I will continue to keep you in my thoughts and prayers. We love you Ray, Good bless you in this time of sorrow. And may God, comfort you.

Ray, our thoughts are with you and your family at this sad time. Beth was a lovely lady and we enjoyed being neighbors to you two for many years. We made a donation to Ozarks Food Harvest in her name so her good works will live on. Jack and Karen Knight

My heart has been deeply saddened since i heard the news. I attended Baptist Bible College and Cherry Street Baptist Church. The Adams were great mentors and caring people to us. The best thing in the world was getting a note in my mailbox at BBC that i had a care package and Mrs. Adams was always excited for us, handing it over with a smile, saying "Enjoy!"
