Barbara, Children, and Family
What a great picture to include with Harold's History. This is exactly the way we Knew and remember him. During the time we were together at New Harmony Baptist Church he was my best friend. Not many people would loan his pickup for a 750 mile round trip just to get a load of old bricks or drive that same distance in cold, icy conditions to attend Carole's mothers funeral. He is my all-time favorite choir member. I could always depend on him to keep our sopranos and altos in line during choir rehearsal by "encouraging the 'Culls' to get with the program. I hated to see you guys move to another church. Since that time there has been something missing, especially during choir practice. We know he is in a better place and we know we are better people because of his friendship and presence in our lives. We had planned to attend the memorial service in spite of the Coronavirus but understand the importance of cancelling it. May God bless you and provide the spiritual and physical strength you need from day to day. We love you very much. Bennie & Carole
