    Dear Brenda and family -- please accept my prayers for y'all's comfort and consolation and for Mr. Harold's speedy trip to Jesus. .what a beautiful life he lived! I loved watching the video memorial and could not help shedding a few tears. It showed a man beloved by family and friends, busy in work and in play and often with a baby on his hip! I wish I could be there with y'all to share the love I feel. Hugs to everyone from us. .
