    Sorry to hear about Harold Passing away.I knew Harold well: We grew up together with Harold and Mary Lynn. Me and my three brothers were friends of Harold. It’s hard to hear of friends passing away. I just wanted to offer my condolences to the family of Harold. May God comfort each and everyone.
