Carolene & Family;
Bettie Lou and I were saddened by the notice of Harold's passing. We had seen him at the nursing home in October just before we left for Arizona. We just want to express our deepest sympathy and wish you and your family the best. Try to have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. I pray that the Good Lord will give you the strength and courage to carry on. God Bless.
