My memories of Harold go way back, at least for me. With Wendy and Al dating through high school, I was nine years old when I first met him and he has had me laughing from that day on. I can truely say that he was one of the best people I enjoyed being around. Especially during our Toledo Bend trips when we played cards with both of us claiming victory over the other but not really knowing who actually won. Save your money, Harold, cause we're going to play again one day. But next time. ...shuffle the cards. You're very special and will be missed... I feel privileged to have known you.
