I can remember as a young ( many years ago) guy working for Ralph and Harold. I always though that their farms look like the ideal farm always clean and friendly. I'm sorry I was not able to attend his service as he always gave him that little smile that you know that things were fine.

Harold was a real gentleman. Played cards with him each Wednesday at the RL library. Counted points right almost all of the time. He will be missed. Mary Thill
