I really enjoyed chatting with Harold at the nursing home, and he became a special friend with our family. He really was proud of his grandkids, and loved to tell stories about his days on the farm, the Depression, in WW2,and trucking. Keep those stories alive, and write them down.

To the family,

I am so sorry for your loss. Death is never an easy situation. Psalms 9:9 helps us to see that God is a secure refuge in times of distress. Please rely on Him in this time of need.
