Linda and the Brassfield family,

I was so sorry to hear about Harold's passing. I worked at Shottenkirk Toyota and set him and Linda up on many trips to take and pick up vehicles. They were quite a team together! Always enjoyed working with him. He was always pleasant and very nice. May God bless you all.

Janice, Steve, Jeff, and Debbi....I am so sad to read about Harold passing away. He was such a great guy. I'll always remember him trying to teach Richard how to play the spoons! My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
