My first introduction to Harold Goldberg was when I was 12 years old. My own father died just two years before. Being the gentle, nurturing couple they were, he and his wife Grace embraced me as their daughter's new dear friend. Because they were so loving and respectful with their children and with each other, even as a young girl, I knew they were truly unique and special people.
To this day, Barbara and I have a special sisterly bond of friendship. My last visit with Harold was in 2011. He was still the gentle man, the kind and generous man, and the wonderful father to Barbara and Larry that he always was. He dearly loved his grandson Kris.
Rest in peace and with Grace, dear Dr. Goldberg. You were a loving husband to Grace, father to Barbara and Larry, grandfather to Kris, and father-in-law to Mark and Raquel. Your family and friends will forever miss you and love you.
