Dear Harold's family and Wanda!!
My thoughts and prayers are with you at this time of your great loss!! For me,after over 50 years of driving by his house at least once a day and not seeing him washing something or hanging from his Catalpa tree drastically chopping branches off every year --is a very empty feeling!! He was a very special friend and I, along with you & others , will miss him a lot!!! I am so happy that he was able to do the things that he wanted to do and had the quality of life to do them while he could--he was amazing!!! And you dear family & Wanda---were always in his life and that meant so much to him!! Hugs to you all!!!
