Dear Ruby and family, I have just learned of Harold's death and offer my condolences. I also enjoyed viewing the family pictures. Ruby and I were nursing classmates at St. Luke's Hospital in Davenport. She always shared such a love for her family. And I remember when she and Harold were dating and so in love. So my best wishes to all of you, especially Ruby. Love to you, Ruby.

Met Harold when he was a client at Walcott veterinary clinic, he was one of the genuinely nicest people I've ever met. He loved his family so much he always talked about them. His son Matt coached my daughter in soccer when they were little. My deepest sympathies to his family.

I grew up with Harold in Buffalo. We played sports in a vacant lot on Second street. We played baseball, basketball, football and even some boxing 🥊! Back then we played sports with the girls as well! The girls would take on the boys and win sometimes! Harold would be paired with Blanche to box! He would have a bloody nose and his shirt would be in shreds! Harold was such a good sport and very good pitcher in baseball! I am glad we grew up together and were good friends.
A lot of good memories!
May our Lord be with Ruby and her family always!

Harold was a great man and I know he will be missed by many...I always hoped I would see him and Ruby when I returned to the quad cities. Ruby and family may your hearts be filled with loving memories and may God hold you as you mourn. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

Feel free to mourn...it is ok. Crying is healing. I pray God will help you to adjust to you new normal.

Peace, love, and prayers!
