So sorry for your loss. It will be hard to drive down the back road and know that Harold is not there anymore. He was a very special person and his good humor and gentle nature made being his friend very easy. We feel blessed to have had such a fine example of humanity grace our lives. He will be missed.

My heartfelt condolences for your loss. Harold was a fine man and I remember many times going swimming in the creek down at the ranch with his nieces, Peggy, Pat and Alice when we were kids. My thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time.
