I am sorry for your loss. I wish I could have been there at the funeral. I thought the world of Harold and he taught me how to cook. I think of him often.

Our Prayers are with all of Mr. Harold's family. He became a special friend of mine while he and my mama, Evelyn Boozer, were at CW together. I was so sorry to hear of his passing. God bless you all.

My heart goes out to the Dodgen family. Harold was my neigh on Jackson Street from his birth until I moved in 1949. We played May I on the Dodgen's steps and many other games together. I missed seeing Harold at the Inglenook in June, and stopped by his house on my way home, only to learn that he was in a nursing home. My prayers are with the Dodgen family today and for evermore.
