    Will miss that distinct laugh and infectious smile!!! Uncle Harold always took the opportunity to ask about our kids-always interested in how they were and what life avenue they were pursuing. Never failed to ask, “How is Caleb doing with his diabetes?”

    I worked with Harold at Carr Cabinet back in 1959. I never forgot what a nice person he was. I have often wondered what ever happened to him down thru the years. He probably got to know Curly Myers at the home. I give my sympathy to the family.
