  • God Bless Michael

    I receive this Private message yesterday from Karen, an HCMA member.

    I just wanted to make you aware of a 21 year old family member that passed last week, Michael XXXX. We were deeply saddened by the news...broken hearted is more like it. Michael was from NJ, but was attending Champlain College in Burlington, Vermont. He was walking to class when he collapsed.

    Our thoughts and prayers are with your family Karen.

    God Bless Michael.

    Lisa

            Karen,

            Please know that we are praying for you and your family during this very difficult time. We will also pray for Michael's classmates at Champlain College, as we know that this will be a difficult time for them as well.
