Dear Pam, Lisa and Jennifer, I am so sorry to hear about Harold. He was such a good man, a wonderful friend to Daddy, and such a dedicated employee. I don't know if he showed it, but Daddy always thought so much of Harold. I will be saying prayers for you all. Kristy Swan Ikenberry

We celebrate a man of few words and many good deeds. Harold was a fine example of humble graciousness. We were lucky to have had him in our lives.
