I miss you more each day. Some days I don't know how to live without you by my side. I will always love you and one day I know we will be together again. My faith gives me strength knowing that you are at peace and your soul has risen to be with our Lord and Savior. I love you, my dear sweet husband.

Harold and I were classmates at Boone High School, Orlando. I graduated one year ahead of Harold, in 1955. We have had some good talks on the e-mail for quite some time. I'll miss getting those notes. We were so sorry to hear about this fast growing cancer. Your family are in our thoughts and prayers. God Bless and Rest In Peace.
