Sharing your loss
We want to say to all the Rhodarmer family how sorry we were to hear of Harold passing. He was one of my neighbors when we were all growing up. I have a lot of fond memories of Harold and the Rhodarmer family. Life goes by so fast we lose contact with people.I never meet Harold’s wife or any of his kids. We would like to express our condolence to each and every one of you. May God bless and comfort all in the days ahead. With love,
Glenna and family, Sorry to hear about the passing of your brother.We are praying for you.

Evelyn, I’m addressing this to you because you were the family member closer to me along with Harold, whom I loved very much. I had not seen him in over 40 years but wanted to do so. I remember him as a laughing, joking and good looking young man who befriended me and my brother growing up. I know that he will be missed, but I have the hope we can be reunited soon. Love to you and all your family. Marie
Sheila Uncle Harold will be missed very much by our family. For the last four years he has been there helping us out in so many ways. But the one thing I have always loved about Uncle Harold is that he loved all of us unconditional. He was always talking about his girls and his grandkids about how very special you all were to him. The only comfort I get is in know that he is not in pain any more and that he is with our wonderful brothers. I could write a book on how special Uncle Harold was but I think you know. I do love all of you and Sheila you have always been special to me because you were more like your Dad then the others, by always given to others.
MAY GOD BLESS YOUR FAMILY IN THIS TIME OF NEED.MY PRAYERS ARE WITH YOU ALL.PROVERBS 3:5-6
