We are sorry to hear about your dad. We are praying peace and healing for your family during this time.
My condolences to all the family. I didn't know Harold personally but I know he must have been a very loving and caring person. He is blood relative. He is a first cousin to my Aunt Jo Eva Panter Davis. I didn't know Harold but I knew his mother and father and brother "Dib" very well. I still live in the Irving College community where Harold is originally from. I know he is in a better place and hope that the family can celebrate all the fond memories of his life on earth.
I am so sorry for your loss. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
The Wilson Family
Megan and family, we are sorry for loss and are thinking about you. Love, Mark and Caroline.
