Marjorie and Vicki,
Word cannot express how my heart aches for you. Harold was a very special man. I guess God needs his help more than we need him here on earth.
I am so sorry I cannot be with you. I am flying out very early tomorrow on business, still working and not packed. I look forward to visiting with you in the near future.
May God hold you in the palm of his hands and grant you strength and peace during this difficult time.

I meet Harold through his wife when I worked at Blessing. Through his guidence and teaching I became a police officer in Hannibal, Mo. I can say that I have never met a more self giving and honorable man in my life and fine and upstanding mason.

You will be missed greatly Harold

I just learned of Harold's passing. He was a good man who cared for his family, his community, and his church. He lived an honorable life and sought to serve his Lord. I am grateful to have known him, and I wish you God's grace and comfort.
