    My deepest condolences to Toni, Taylor and Brantley. Harold was adored by all who knew him. He had a huge heart that you just fell in love with. He was so funny and a forever friend. I know after Linda passed, it seemed like he was so lost, then Toni came into his life and he was happy again. He sure loved his children. He had a brilliant mind to go with that big heart. Heaven is laughing today because of him. I know I, along with all his friends will miss him so much. I’m so sorry I can’t be there as I’m 8 hours away but with you all in spirit. God bless you all.

    My condolences to the family, Harry was loved by many. I meet Harry in 1972 and will always cherish the memories of the time we spent together. Living out of town for the last 25 years I didn’t get to see my old friend much, however when we did see each other it was as if we lived next door. Harry will live in folklore for many many years.

    Harry was one of those guys that helped anybody with anything they needed. He did so much for me and Charlie when we first moved to the country. I always think of him when I see a bucket by the side of the road because that man would stop to pick up a bucket! We will miss him but of course never forget him. He and Linda leave two children behind who remind me so much of both of them. They couldn’t have done a better job. Love ya’ll both.
    Becky and Charlie
