Our dream queen was a Daddy's girl, and the light of her Momma's eyes. She always said to "Never leave angry, and always say 'I love you'." She preferred hugs over handshakes, and never met a stranger. She had a beautiful soul that always shined through her big, brown eyes, and a smile that could light up a room.
She is survived by many close friends and her beloved family; Mother, Susan Y. Bevis, and Father, Thomas G. Bevis (Cathy Burke). Brothers, Luke (Brittany and Wayland), William (Lauren), and Oliver Bevis, all of Tallahassee. Loving family members Susanne and Joe Taranto, Jo Davis, Bonnie and Richard Bevis, Heather and Todd Bevis (Cayden and Raelynn), Heather Frenchman (Brandt), Pam Hamilton (Russ, Matt, Margaret and Leslie), Lisa Yarborough, Tommy and Carol Yarborough (Kelly and Juliet), Amber and Dylan Goff and her special love, Josh Samman.
Hailey was a long time member of First Baptist Church, and her faith was strong. To honor that, the family requests donations be made to First Baptist Church, in lieu of flowers, to help fund other young people in their faith.
Bevis Funeral Home (www.bevisfh.com, 850/385-2193) is assisting the family with their arrangements.
