TWIN LAKES, WI (OnFocus) — After Kim Beverly’s husband Frank passed away earlier this year, she took to social media to try and reclaim some of her work that had been sold.

She wrote on social media: “I know it’s long but I wouldn’t forgive myself if I didn’t try. Pictured below are some baggo boards (corn hole boards) that my husband built and last year he convinced me to sell them at our garage sale we had in August 2021 (the garage sale was in Twin Lakes, WI) I only accepted it because that he told me he would make me another set last winter he passed away and i would love to have these baggo boards they mean so much more than a backyard game i would refund well sure the owner would agree to resell them to me They are Cubs vs Brewers with matching bags but the most distinctive thing is if you turn the boards over in black it says Frank Beverly underneath Thanks in advance for all the help you have to offer.”

After being featured on Fox 6 last weekend and having her post shared across the social media platform, the signs were found and returned on July 10.

She later updated the post with the following: “The boards have been flipped! The sweet family contacted me today and were more than happy to return them and would not accept payment for them. They said they wanted to show kindness above all else. We are overwhelmed and very grateful to everyone who shared and offered their support. We couldn’t have done this without all of your help… Thank you.

She shared additional information on TikTok later:

Kim wrote: “The sweet family was having a BBQ yesterday and someone at the party shared the story with the wife and they walked over to the boards and turned them over and saw my husband’s signature so the family contacted me today and were more than happy to return them and would not accept payment for them. They said they wanted to be kind first. We are overwhelmed and very grateful to everyone who shared and offered their support We couldn’t have done this without all of your help… Thank you.

Frank is survived by his wife of 25 years, as well as his children, Frank R., Emily, Ashley and Amanda Beverly, and his parents Ron and Diane Beverly, among others.
