So sorry to hear of the loss of your dad. My 7-1/2 years of working with Harold at Columbia Concrete Products were some of the most satisfying years, and the experience there convinced me that a job in Precast Concrete would lead to a career in Precast Concrete. He was always a gentleman to work for, and in those instances where we disagreed on things, he was always open to comment and suggestions. I am so glad that I did have the chance to visit with him a few minutes before Ryan's funeral. We got to share some old memories of the CCP days, and he seemed to appreciate our chat. I certainly appreciate his part in my professional life, as well as in my personal life as he moved us to South Carolina to work for the company. Harold was a special man and I considered him a friend as well as a boss.
