Dear Tom, Barry, Jordan, Boomer, Mary, and Jim:
We were so sorry to hear of Bev's passing. We have always enjoyed our Iowa visits immensely and are thinking of you now. May time help you heal and bring you peace.
Sincerely, David & Robin Miller
So sorry to hear the sad news of Bev's passing. Bev was a long time friend from our time at Iowa State, and I always enjoyed talking to her during our Converse Reunions. Tom, Barry, and Jordan, and the rest of her family you are in my thoughts and prayers. Dennis Bogaard
Tom, Barry, Jordan and extended family. I am so sorry for your loss. I got to know Bev through the Fairyland game we played on Facebook. We talked often about our shared faith and our college Big XII rivalry as I graduated from the University of Oklahoma and Bev from Iowa State. We also had many long phone calls. I was so hoping once Covid-19 cleared up we would get the chance to meet in person. Sadly that day will have to wait until I get to talk/ see Bev in heaven. May God give you all the peace and comfort you need as you mourn the loss of sweet Bev. Blessings, Cynthia Owens

Barry and Jordan, May this quote from Leo Buscaglia provide some comfort: "I know for certain that we never lose the people we love, even to death. They continue to participate in every act, thought, and decision we make. Their love leaves an indelible imprint in our memories. We find comfort in knowing that our lives have been enriched by having shared their love."
Bev, I will always remember you. And fondly remember the friendship we shared through the love of our Corgis !
For the love of our Corgis
I missed making her a birthday cake for a few years, and she gave me a hard time about it!
What a brave fight Bev made over the years battling cancer. I am sorry for your families loss, she will be missed.
Bev Landt-Rider was such a kind and generous person. I've known her for such a short time - 1 1/2 yrs. We were introduced by a mutual friend after I found out that I had breast cancer. Bev introduced me to her oncologist who she loved and is now my doctor. Bev was such a huge help to me and continued to be such a good example for me in my life. I will always remember her courage to keep fighting as she did. She loved her family dearly. I am sorry she had to leave us so soon, but I am sure she is with God. Sending love and prayers to Bev and her loving family.❤
