Having a wonderful time dancing with Harold and watching him dance with Doris and Myra when we were at Myra and Don's cottage-Harold the life of the party. Mr. Schatz teaching me how to bowl and all the gutter balls I got that day; he was not giving up, but I did. Always guaranteed a great breakfast when Harold was cooking!! and the great times at the trailer. A kind gentle man who loved everyone-God Bless you Harold. Love your Italian daughter xoxo
