Harold was a wonderful person who always loved our pet therapy visits each month. We would talk about when he and my mom worked at the bank together so long ago. I know he's happy to be reunited with your mom. Stay strong and remember the good times.

So sorry for your loss. Your Dad had long and wonderful life. Remembering our friendship and the great times we had hanging out. See you at our 50th! I am no longer in the area (moved to Duluth Mn, of all places!)so I will not be able to be with you on Thursday. I will keep your family in my prayers.
