Patsy, I am so sorry about Harold. You and I go back such a long way and I was so shocked to learn of his passing. You two were such a perfect couple. May your sweet memories help you thru this time and may God grant you the strength and peace you will need. He was a wonderful person. You are in my heart and thoughts.

We are shocked and saddened to learn of Harold's untimely death. Martha reminded me of his heroic catch, fully extended, of my throw wide of first base to put out the batter in an intramural softball game. We also well recall how he graciously helped us struggle to get my sofa bed--the longest and heaviest piece of furniture in a standard American household--up flight after stifling flight of stairs to our floor at the married students' apartments. I can also remember the sense of camaraderie that struck me one bleary-eyed night in 1975 at the Dallas VA Hospital when I came upon a clear and orderly Ophtho note from Harold as I reviewed the old chart on my new admission. We shall miss him.

Patsy, My thoughts and prayers are with you. Having lost my husband of 46 years in late 2012 (William L. "Bill" Smith from your class--1964), I can only say the grief eases over time, but the loss is always with you. Grieve in your own way and your own time. Remember the good times. Sincerely, Donna Liddington Smith '63
