Harold was a wonderful man. I helped him at Swan Lake and spent time cutting his grass when needed. We had many wonderful talks about our lord and he will be miss.

The first thing that comes to my mind
Is that Harold loved cornbread. I would go to cook supper for him. We would have collard greens, mashed potatoes,
Pinto beans, & cornbread. It was so funny
That you did not have to call him to supper time. When that cornbread came out of oven he would make his way to
Table & begin buttering his bread. We
Would hold hands, & he would pray.
Well after that, later on he would have
Buttermilk & cornbread. I would put Harold on the speaker at night & he would talk to my puppies. Taki, Molly,
Bella, & Sophie would be mesmerized by
Listening to his voice. They will really miss him too. There are many more good memories, so many I could write a book. I will always miss my friend everyday & Love ❤️ him forever.
Rest In Peace!
Your bestest friend,
Lois M.Adcock
