Not sure what to say?

Knowing Harold practically my whole life through my good friend Cindy, I can say he was one of a kind and a shining example of his generations goodness. He will be missed by all that had the privilege of knowing him and chatting with him anytime you ran into him at the local establishments. My heartfelt sympathy to all his family.

I have known Mr. Harold since I was a small child. My parents, Richard and Virginia Everhart were friends on his. In these last years, I would love seeing him at McDonalds in Welcome. He always remembered me and my husband. He was a dear, kind person and I always loved running into him.

Rhonda and Cindy, I am so sorry to hear about your dad. He never failed to speak to me if he saw me first at the grocery store or Bojangles or wherever in Welcome we crossed paths. When mama was still living he always asked about her. They were a big part of our “good old days” keeping everyone in my prayers.

Ronda and Family,
I just found out this morning, and I'm so sorry to hear this. Although I never met your Dad, I know how much he was so loved by you, your sister, and everyone. Please know that I'm praying fpr you and your family. I know how you're feeling because my mother-in-law went to be with the Lord a little over a week ago.
