Kevin, Matthew, Michael, Holly, Shannon, and I are all saddened by Harold's death. We all loved him so very much. His dedication to and love for my sweet Aunt Erma endeared him to our entire family. As a family, we have special memories of the times we all spent together fishing at his lake, picnicing, golfing, and vacationing with them in Florida. May God bless him and give respite to his soul.

Our Sympathy to the whole family. Harold was a wonderful man. We have many fond memories of good times together. Lost contact when life got busy for us but thought of them quite a few times and thought a lot of him and Erma. He is at peace now. God Bless!
