Good Ole Harold Applewhite. I will miss him. He was as unique an individual as you will ever find. I worked with and for him for well over a decade. He was unstoppable at whatever he put his mind to. He could work your last nerve, then 2 min later be generous and funny. I never saw someone work as long and hard as he did. And for as hard as he worked, He played just as hard. A truly wonderful person.

We will proudly keep it green and keep all his four legged children fed as long as we have to. He’s pictured here with...
