Growing up, I had the privilege of being in the Sparks house often...and it was always a place of laughter and love. I remember Harold teasing all of us...I don't think we were ever together when he wasn't smiling and being playful. One Saturday evening we were all watching television and he went to the frig for a snack. Mamie asked what he was getting. "Cheese," he said.
She said, "That cheese is binding, you better not eat too much of it."
He said, "I know, it had my hands tied before I could get out of there." And we all cracked up. It was evident how much he loved his partner, and how much she loved him. I am so glad I got to grow up with Cindy and James and love and be loved by their beautiful parents. They all hold a special place in my heart.

Through the years I have thought of Harold and Mamie often. They were true loving parents. Harold taught me how to drive his big truck, dump truck I believe. I can back with mirrors because of him and his patience. Of course he did tell me to "stop" because I was about to back into his house!
I'm glad they are together again even though they are greatly missed.
