Edra & Harold traveled with me on a number of trips. The most memorable was the trip to Russia & The Baltic States. We were a long way from home in countries so unlike America. We used holes in the ground for rest rooms & even though the water was crystal clear we were not allowed to drink it. Harold & Edra were so good to me & I will always have fond memories of Edra & Harold. My only regret is that I didn’t call or go see them last week when they were on my mind so strongly. Love & prayers for Harold & Family. 💕

Edra Tolar was a dear friend of ours for the last 55 years. She and Harold were faithful members of our church, First Baptist Church in Norco, LA. We have kept in touch with them through the years and for the last several years Edra and I (Belinda) have talked and prayed together each week. We will miss her much. Our prayers are for Harold and for Larry and family and Michael and family.
