Guestbook

To the Washington/Beard family. Our grief is shared with you. Henry was a very strong young man. He carried the torch well and will be missed. I never saw him slack up and he earned the nick name (Doc Savage). In basketball practice he led the team work outs. Always came in first running the Gym seated benches.

Such a beautiful video tribute!!! Maggie and Lamelia, and other family- You are in my deepest thoughts and prayers. His death hit me really hard. He and I had a real good bond, and I was honored to take care for him since May of 2008 when our paths first crossed. My very deepest sympathy to you!
