Comments: It's taken me a long time to write because I'm still getting over the shock of losing a classmate. I knew Beth in middle school, but really got to know her in high school, where we ran track and cross country together, and spent 4 years together in French class. We were never close friends, but I knew her well enough to know that she was a sweet, compassionate, intelligent person. I passed by her a few weeks before her death and was too busy to stop and catch up. I'll never make that mistake again. Beth, I will miss you. I will keep the Cowras family in my prayers.

In the times of loss and grief, God IS with you! Stay strong! To the Cowras Family: Everyone is praying for you! Mrs. Cowras, all the kids at Tomahawk say "hi".

Comments: I hadn't seen Beth since she graduated in 1997, but she was always someone who I never forgot. My sister April and I ran track and cross country with Beth and also worked on the yearbook staff with her. She was such a sweet girl who never had a bad thing to say about anyone. Her perseverance and positive attitude about everything always impressed me and I will never forget her sweet smile. I am so sorry to see such a young life lost, but I know that in the short time Beth was here, she truly left an impression on many people, even without knowing it. My thoughts and prayers are most definitely with the family, but I also take solace in the fact that Beth is in a better place now.

Comments: Beth was the best friend I ever had, and I hope everyone realizes just how special she was. For anyone who didn't know her all that well, you really missed out on something wonderful. Beth would do anything for her friends, and would probably do anything for anyone. That's the kind of person she was. For anyone who was ever mean to her, I hope you realize the errors of your ways. Beth will never be replaced in my heart.
