I was a caregiver of Bernard Surath for 3 years and 1/2 he was an amazing person, so full of life, and so funny❤️❤️ I truly enjoyed and was grateful to be able to care for him. He will be truly missed.. my Condolence goes out to the Family, and close friends. He would always like to go outside and watch the ducks by the pond. He taught me so much about animals that I was not even aware of. He truly made me realize why I was appointed to work with people in this field God bless him always!🙏🏿
