I met Harold in FarmVille Virginia in 1972-1974 . I live in Matthews, NC. I fell in love with Harold there & when I came back to Charlotte, NC. I saw him a few times thru out the years after that until the 80s. I thought so much of Harold. I just this AM decided to search for him again for some reason after all these years. It is 6:55 AM & woke up, strangely had Harold only on my mind after years & years remembering him. I just discovered he no longer is here. In the last 20 years I was determined to find where he was & to hunt him down & see him again. Its too late I just discovered. Harold, I was so in love with you. I had the worse crush love for you than any other guy I had ever known. I still remember looking at your beautiful face the first time & never could give you up.
I had heard he had a brother & partner thru a 45 year long time friend that died recently. He lived on Elbow Road. John Thomas Smith died & he just left us a few weeks ago. I wished I could have seen you Harold one more time and hug you for a few minutes. Tears are running down my face now. I loved Harold. No one knew about my feelings toward Harold except Harold. Harold, I am angry. I just wanted to see you one more time. All my friends & family have died now. I am Terry Reid Peeler. Harolds brother & I can remember his name I heard of and never got to meet him. I am upset & crying now. I found this out at a bad time. I have a photo of me & Harold from the year I met him but its in storage & know I still have it but cant find it. Anyone that finds appropriate to call me please do. I am crying now.

My birth date is August 19th 1953.

Danny and family, I am so sorry that Harold is gone. Since I moved away from the Carolinas years and years ago, I lost touch with him though I never have forgotten him. I wish I had known he was sick, I would have been sure to have visited him. So sad, and a good soul gone too soon. I mourn your loss with you. Danny if you would get in touch with me I would like to make a donation in his honor. randytho@comcast.net

Hugs for all,
Randy Thomas
