  1. Dear Kathleen and Family: I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your dad. I hold such fond memories of you and your family and send my love and prayers to all of you.

  2. Lois & Family,
    Harold was such a kind and good man. He was so good to our family and his work will remain a blessing in our home for many years to come. Mattias still has the tape measure that Harold gave him. So glad we were able to come and see him recently.
    Coincidentally, he and my grandmother (Pat Pumphrey) died on the same day. They are both released from their suffering and are received in love by our Lord.
    Grace & Peace,
    Amy Piatt
