Wife, grand-mother and friend to many on Squidoo, Bev joined the site around the same time that I did in the Summer of 2008. And like me, it was a very personal and upsetting story that first drew Bev to writing on Squidoo: He Chose Suicide. It was my response to that lens that started our correspondence, which turned into friendship when a group of us got together to see what could happen if Squidoo members collaborated to share what they know.
As with any group, people gradually left to pursue their independent goals, but Bev and I are still sharing what we know, together with Paula Atwell, and we are all so proud that our original project: Learn Squidoo: Step by Step is still helping lensmasters.
Completely non-judgemental, Bev is a gentle soul, with a great sense of humor, but who is not beyond getting a tad “feisty” when needs be! We laugh and yes, we have cried together and she has been huge support to me as I try come to terms with the loss of my Dad.
Thanks to Skype, we speak regularly and Bev is definitely one of those online friends who I hope to meet in person one day.
So please join with me in wishing Bev a very happy birthday and leave your own personal message for her. As for me, all it remains for me to say is:
“Bev, you are well loved and such a special friend. Thank you for being you.”
