Condolences to the family and friends
Our family didn't realized it was Mr. Harold that passed away. We always saw him at church with his beautiful and welcoming smile every Sunday. He never missed shaking hands with my husband, me and our girls. How we wished we could do more to know him. He is a sweet man. We will definitely going to miss him. Even our little one recognized him when we opened the obituary and she just cried because all we remembered about him is his welcoming spirit, his smile on Sundays. What a sweet and godly man. He is now in a better place with our Father.
Our thoughts and prayers to the family and friends.
