Dear Twyla and family,
We were very sad to read about Harold's passing . We enjoyed knowing him and all of you. We will always remember the fun times at the fish fries at Curley's. I am sorry we haven't kept in touch. Where have the years gone? May he now rest in peace.
Our deepest sympathy,
Ralph and Linda Carlone
