    Harold has given us so many happy memories. There are not enough words to share them all--My deepest sympathy to Kathy and the family. Heaven gained a funny Angel.

    My heart is just broken for you. Harold will be missed. I have so many memories of the Thanksgiving dinners at your house and Harold being so funny. Plus all the guys watching football downstairs and listening to stories about the kids or fishing stories or work stories! He was a great man and loved his family! Love and hugs to you.
