Dearest Tiny, Rita Lynn, Danny, and all:
From far away in Africa, I send my deep condolences for Harold's passing. He was my favorite great uncle and a very inspirational person in my life. I will always treasure his service to our country and my memories of his zest for life.
Words can't express how much I wish I could join you in remembering Harold this week. Please know that I will be there in spirit, honoring him here in Morocco. I look forward to paying my respects when I return to the States.
Harold passed on Bastille Day, the birthday of the French Republic and celebration of France's liberty from tyranny, which Harold bravely defended in World War II.
With much love,
