Mr McBeth was my neighbor throughout childhood. He always took the time to answer my questions. When I would make honor roll, he would cut it from the Spinal Column and send me a note. When I returned to Michigan in 2002 he was again my neighbor. He was very kind to my family. Such a wonderful man. He will be missed.
