My heartfelt sympathy goes out to Harold,s family. Our relationship goes back to the late 40’s when we were students at Brevard College.
I still have one of his specialty rugs he gave me. It was a ‘Throw Rug’ shaped like a foot. I will cherish it always.
May Harold,s soul rest in peace.
Roxie, We are so very sorry. You and your family are in our prayers. You often shared the following hymn chorus with me, and I hope it will bring you comfort too

So sorry about your loss. You will
be in our prayers.
