It has been decades since I last visited with Harold. As a young employee at Simplicity I remember his peaceful and jolly nature. I recall him generously sharing the sweet corn crop in season or the card games during lunch times. Bobby has kept me in the loop with some of our acquaintances at Simplicity. God's Peace to the whole family and network of people Harold has touched over the years.
