  • To Bev. and Family,

    My heartfelt love to you and may the wonderful memories you have help you in the days ahead.

    One of my memories while visiting Bev. and Harold recently was sitting on the couch with Harold as a “copper commercial” came on TV. He told me got one of those skillets and how wonderful it is….He wanted me to order the smaller new one being offered and if I liked it he would get one…….it was like “bull crapping ” with his brothers. I loved all the siblings and miss them.

    I know my Donnie and Harold shared many good times talking quarry talk.

    Love to all….Poochie…. [Aunt Poochie]

  • We are so deeply sorry for your loss. Uncle Harold was a great caring man. I will always treasure the talks we would have when I would run in to him at Kroger or CVS. He always had a sweet attitude every time I would see him. I also always loved seeing him drive by our house in his truck and do his index finger wave. Please know Jared & I will keep all of your family in our prayers.

  • When I think of Uncle Harold, I remember a good looking man that always smelled so good. He always look sharp and stylish. I can hear his voice in my head. His voice was gruff but his words were gentle. He was such a worker, provider and I see his strong hands in my memory of him, too.

    I am so sorry for your loss. I will always remember Uncle Harold and it saddens me he is the last of those VB kids of that generation. I know it is tough to let go of our father or husband who are the strength and bond of a family. I choose to hold on in knowing his pain is gone and he might be with his siblings now remembering and laughing about their lives on the farm. They worked so hard on Earth and now have time to just visit and be pain free. I hope you can find comfort in that also.

    He will be missed and I hope time heals your sadness. Connie
