  2. My wife Ella and I are saddened to learn of Harold Conley’s death. This talented man was first loved by my parents, Buel and Opal Mc Carty, and later us kids loved Harold, and we were so glad to see Donna and Harold on their many visits back to Ohio. Harold is now absent from the body, and present with our Heavenly Father. Family, relatives, and friends can take comfort in that thought. I say to Harold now…”Thanks for the wonderful memories, Cuz!”
