Harold was an amazing man with such discipline and determination to live life to the fullest. Several years ago, when i told him I was moving to Hawaii, Harold said, "well if you are moving to Hawaii, I'm moving to Hawaii too" and he and Jo packed up and enjoyed the islands with us for a while. I've known Harold my whole life and now there is an empty spot where he used to be and I will miss him terribly. But, praise God, we will see each other again someday in heaven. Jo and Angel, you are in my prayers and I hope you find peace in God's love.

Harold, I haven't seen you in many years, but I will forever remember the fun times you, Marini, Sherry, Wanda and I had walking to the bowling alley and spending Sunday afternoon there! What a fun and innocent time that was. You will be missed...Cathy Sharp Collinson

Harold was a man who it was an honor to know, and be friends with. His care, consideration, and concern for others was one of the remarkable legacies of his life. As I have noted in other venues, Heaven is a better place because he is now there, and this world is a poorer place because he is no longer with us. May God in his mercy bathe the pain of this heart rending loss in the joyful memories of the times we have spent with Harold. Remember that the reunion in Heaven will be GLORIOUS!!!
