Harold was an amazing blessing to my sister as well as a great brother, father, grandfather and to the entire family. I am not sure if everyone knows but he often called me Lornie Doo. With all my accomplishments he always said Lorine no one deserved it like you. I am so blessed to have had him touch my life.
Just a little story, Joyce and Harold both enjoyed going to the casino and spending time having dinner, playing a few slots and truly enjoying each other.

Well as I got the news that the end was near of his brave long hard battle on Thursday, I was in California for work and took the first flight home. Well it just so happened my connection was in Las Vegas, so I knew in my heart that Lornie Doo had to put that dollar in the slot machine and pull that one arm bandit one last time for Harold. Well needless to say I did not win but wanted to say Harold You will always be a winner to me every single roll of the dice or pull of the arm. I love you Harold

It never failed. Every year during the holidays at grandma's house, Joyce and Harold would be the first to pull in the driveway. And every time that car door shut, I would fly out the doors, couldn't wait to show them which new song I had learned to sing, or dance move, etc. And as annoying as it may have been, you would have never known. Uncle Harold would always greet us with "Hey good lookin". A greeting we all looked forward too. There are no words in this world to justify how most of us are feeling right now. That uncle, that growing up you swore would outlive us all. The most genuine person I knew. I pray that he will join other loved ones in watching over and comforting this family and guide us on a sure path to see him again in the future. I love you so much uncle Harold. !!!!!!!
