Hold hands and remember all the wonderful times together.
UNCLE HAROLD WAS VERY SPECIAL TO ME. NEVER FORGET THE TIMES THAT HE ASKED FOR SOME BANANA PUDDING WHEN HE CAME TO VISIT. HE WILL ALWAYS HAVE A SPECIAL PLACE IN MY HEART.I LOVE YOU UNCLE HAROLD.
When I think of you I remember all the great stories you and Aunt Billie would tell when you came to visit and how you would sometimes mention something you did or thought in your youth that Billie wouldn’t have approved of at the time and how her eyes would widen, and she would say, “HAROLD!!”
Actually it was more like, “HAR-OLD!!” You could make us all laugh.
I dreamed the other night that you came up to me perfectly healthy, gave me a kiss and told me you loved me. I love you too. You will be missed.
LIKE A BROTHER TO ME!!
A WONDERFUL BROTHER-IN-LAW!!-
BUT I CALLED HIM UNCLE HAROLD
I LOVE YOU, UNCLE HAROLD!!
Uncle Harold was a good man and will be greatly missed. Aunt Billie, Karen, Hal, Allison and all of your families are in our thoughts and prayers.
Chuck, Tricia, and Liam
Karen, Allison, and Hal,
My thoughts and prayers have been with you and your mom these last few days. Your dad was such a wonderful and sweet man. Words can not express the sorrow that I feel for you all during this time of great loss. However, I can’t help but feel joyful for your dad because he is now in a place that we all hope to be one day and he is giving lots of hugs to his brother and to Kim. Please allow God to be your strength and your guide in the days and weeks to come. Love, Tracey
