Dear Carol and Family, Ron and I were very sad to hear about your dad’s passing. Harold was such a wonderful neighbor. He did look out for his neighbors, mowing lawns and blowing snow. He was a wonderful friend to mom. I loved to hear his stories about feeding the deer. We will all miss him very much. Our deepest sympathy.

May God wrap his arms around all of you during this difficult time. Losing those we loved so dearly is the hardest thing ever and I don’t think we ever get over it. We just learn to live without them, keep them in our hearts forever and cherish the memories we have of them. May you all be blessed with your precious memories of your Dad and the love of him in your hearts!
