The best memory I have with Grandma was when she and Grandpa were watching us while mom and dad were gone on a trip or something. I must have been 8 or so. I remember Grandma taking me on a walk around our house in Vernal. Everything we walked by, Grandma pointed out its beauty. I remember seeing a tree that had purple flowers and I asked her if it was a lilac tree, thinking about a primary song that I liked 'My Heavenly Father Loves Me'. I can't remember if it was a lilac tree or not, but I remember learning to appreciate all the beautiful things around me, just outside my door. Grandma was always a kind gental woman and I am proud that she is my Grandma. I love you grandma! Say hi to Dad, Jeff, Wayne and Grandpa! I'll miss you!

"Grandma, I love you and will miss you. I remember spending warm summer days together tending your flowers, especially the chrysanthemums, geraniums, and roses. Everytime I see honeycomb cereal I think of you and all the cookies you'd hide from grandpa! Watching the movie, Dot and the Kangaroo, always made me cry, but something I still remember. You were a great storyteller, along with grandpa. and a great cook too! I'll always be grateful to you and grandpa for letting me and a friend stay at your home for the summer during college break. You were as honest as they come even and a great example of strength, courage, kindness, and generosity. Thank you for all of the love and care for me over the years. I love you Grandma!Heidi

I did not know Beverly, but I have developed a great friendship with her son's Garth and Matt. I can tell she must be a great lady by the sons she raised. May her family and friends be comforted in knowing they will only be apart from her for a short time and then will come a sweet reunion. God bless you all.

I have so many fond memories spending time with my Grandma Limburg. She has always been very compassionate, loving, and full of service. On many occasions my sister and I spent time with Grandma & Grandpa Limburg, watching Dot and the Kangeroo, and eating all of her "hidden" cinnamon bears! I admire her love for music, and playing the piano. I have very much enjoyed listening to her endless stories surrounding missionary work in Holland and Suriname. She also has a funny sense of humor, and I loved hearing she and my grandpa crack jokes with one another. How grateful I am for the Plan of Happiness that allows our families to be together forever. I know she is happy, enjoying time with those that have passed before her. Grandma, I love you! I will eat Frosty's with fries in memory of you! Please say hello to Grandpa. I love and miss both of you!
