Sending my condolences to all the family. I think I was around 15 years old or so the last time I saw Pastor Beard. I have so many good memories growing up in the Church in Oroville, he pastored and my Dad co-pastored. My sister Felicia mentioned above a few other good memories we had as well. I know you will be missed by so many down here on earth,, but I know that you are in heaven with Jesus as well as your loved ones and my Dad. Until I meet up with you all again. Love Vanessa (Ness)
Daddy, I miss you and love you so very much. I take solace in knowing you are no longer struggling to catch your breath. You are now walking the streets of gold, praising our Lord & Savior. We will see each other again.
Grandpa, We love you! You will be missed, until we meet again!All our love, Brian and Amber
I am going to miss you so so much! Our visits, our talks, now who do I talk too when I need adviCe. I loved it when you'd talk about the Bible. the way you used to critique the movies when it comes on the ten commandments and all of those and you'd set the record straight and how it was really laid out in the Bible when you talked about family your mom your dad your sister your grandma. You always were a great story teller. you were agreat teacher of the life & scriptures. I know how much you loved us kids. Daddy these are just a few of the ways and reasons why I am going to miss you I hurt so bad I miss you so bad i love you Daddy rest in peace you've earned time with the Lord so glad you're not in pain anymore. You were a great father you and Mama both the best parents any kids could ever have had. 1st Bill then you I am so broken. I love you, Your little Rose of Sharon.
