    Sorry to hear Uncle Harold. You both were good to Ed and I. We still have all the things he made for us. When I close my eyes I see Aunt Etta, Aunt Gloria, Uncle Harold, Mom, and Dad sitting around a table eatting mom’s cinnamon rolls and drinking coffee looking down on us from heaven and they are all healthy and smiling. You are in our prayers love Ed and Twilla Phillips
