Family of Michael Beard:

I had the pleasure of getting to know and servicing Michael during one of his stay at a local hospital.

I was shocked and saddened to see that he had made his transition to heaven. What a earthly loss.

I extended my deepest condolences to his family and may God grant him eternal rest.

I am so so sorry.
