Dale, Carol, and I are second cousins, once removed to the Snyder boys. I remember Harold as a very gentle, soft spoken young man and a very handsome one too. I remember being in their home in Hammett, ID. They were a very nice family. I especially remember how kind their mother was. Our paths haven't crossed in years, although I do remember you, Lila (Chupp), and your brothers from Hesston school days.
My heart goes out to you and your family and you adjust to living without Harold. I imagine your are a close and loving family. Eighty is a young age to me now since I am also close to that age. I wish good people like Harold could live much longer to share their lives with us.
Next time I come to Oregon, I will attempt to visit you. Carol lives in Eugene and we visit a couple of times a year.
My love and sympathy to you and yours.

Harold and I worked together one summer after my brother Wayne had passed away with two others in a boating accident at Crescent Lake, a senior sneak from Western. So Harold filled in a big spot in my life at that time. We did farming and constructed steel grain bins around the country. And after I had gotten my drivers license he suggested I might like to drive home which I very willingly accepted. However, I couldn't stay awake and he had to grab the wheel twice before we got home. I asked him one time how to gauge a train coming before you cross a track. He said, better be safe than sorry, which I apply to my life. Later took me out for my first game of golf, and introduced me to computers and more. Such memories. Was expecting to see him again.

Carol and I feel blessed that we had Harold and Lyla as family, friends, and traveling companions. We have pleasant memories of many trips that we shared together. Some examples are when Harold and I went to NASCAR races at Las Vegas. Or when we ate at a waterfront restaurant in Mazatlan and watched in awe at the beautiful sunset over the Pacific Ocean. On one trip to Branson Don and Marilyn and Fran and Darla joined us there. When Chupps get together you know there will be story telling, laughter, singing, and card playing.

Harold brings back many good memories. I knew him through the first years of High School. He was very intelligent. It brings back memories of hiking, digging for treasure, swimming in the Snake river, their hot springs, water cress, and soon. Both our parents where brought close because of their activities in Church work. Thus, we usually saw them very frequently before the Snyder family moved to Oregon.
Lina, Harold's mother, was a nurse and gave us our shots. Indian Cove was not only remotely located but the local Mennonites were not rich; so Lina by default became the local area doctor when people need help. After leaving the Cove, when Dad and Lina remarried we also reconnected with her sons: Harold, Delbert, and Ivan.
