On behalf of the Lake family, Harold much so much to each of us. He took Jim & Doris to the Holy Land & was a faithful spiritual leader for the Winchester UMC. He was there for Deb and myself as we started our life together. On a personal level, He was a true mentor and one class act. And, will never forget that he was there for us when Katie was in Riley Hospital... How he walked thru recovery without getting stopped, I'll never know! You are in our thoughts and prayers. Jim & Doris and Rev. Philip Lake & family (Deb, Katie & Rob)
