    Phyllis and family – I am so saddened to hear of your father’s passing. I had the honor of having him for an uncle and I will always remember my getting together with him and your mom my Aunt Dot with great fondness. They were so full of life and love and I was truly blessed to have them shower me with that love. They will always be in my thoughts and prayers. And when I remember them I always think of you and the joys and sorrows of having such wonderful parents that could not be with you here long enough. My sincere condolences go out for you and your sons. Your loving cousin – Mike.

    Harold carried a beautiful light within him that touched everyone he knew. When my Pa, his best friend John Neves, passed away, Harold came to me with tears in his eyes because we had both lost such an important man in our lives. He always treated me and my family so well, and I will never forget his genuine loving personality. May you find peace in the many years of wonderful memories you were able to build with such a strong, caring, and charismatic man.
