Dear cousins, so sorry to hear of Harold's passing and that distance has caused our various lives to diverge. Those visits to our Windsor relatives when we were kids were always a pleasure -Harold was one of Mom's favourite nephews for sure! And I was thrilled to be the flower girl even if I was a shy, grumpy one ;) Nina was so sweet so I imagine you are the best grandma! Sincere wishes for peace and good memories even through the saddest times.

We will miss Harold's scooter visits to ask for some wood cut for a project that Harold was doing for the rehab hospital! He was always helping others,a kind and wonderful person. Rest in peace. Our sincerest condolences to Nina and family. Sandy and Mike Hart.

So sorry to hear about Harold, my sincere sympathies to you Nina and all the family. I know it was a long, long time ago but he was a great boss to me at Dresser Electric and I won't forget his kindness.
