Michael's Bereavement Fund

Help us raise money to support our dear friend Michael Smith; who lost his long-term girlfriend, Bernadette, unexpectedly last week. Bernadette had suffered from health concerns for several years but was able to manage with Michael’s kind selfless nurturing and support.  We lost her too early at only 39, but her free artistic spirt, beautiful pink hair, and warm smile will live on with all those that loved her.

In the wake of this tragic loss, Michael was left with memorial expenses, flight costs to bury her ashes in New Jersey, and completing the move into the new home he recently purchased for Bernadette.  We are hoping to raise money to ease some of the financial burden during this time of grief.  Thank you for your contribution and all the prayers sent to Michael over the past few days, having the support from his JLL Family means so much.

Campaign Organizer:  Michelle LaForce, Atlanta GA, friend and manager of Michael Smith.  Funds will be withdrawn by Michelle and a check will be provided to Michael along with a card signed by the team.
