Harold, I did not really know you because you were only about 3 or 4 years old when I moved from this area. However I did know your Mom and Dad so you too must have been special. May the Peace and Love of Christ continue with you forever.

I am so sorry to hear about Harold's passing. I was the manager of homestead Rd for 5 years and Harold was always my helper. He was always in a good mood, always smiling and always laughing. His life may have been short but it was good! He can now be with his mom and dad again, because I know he missed them.

I first met Harold when we were both about 7 years old. My father was a chiropractor and back in the 1950’s, in Charlton Doctors performed house calls. My young brother, and I were waiting in the car as my father administered to Harold’s parents in the house. Harold came bounding out of the house, his red hair in a tussle. My brother and I were not quite sure how to handle Harold’s enthusiastic welcome. Later in adult years, Harold continued his warn and enthusiast greetings. Harold you will be missed.

I am so sorry to hear of the passing of Harold. We met at the Saratoga Farmers' Market and I enjoyed our "conversations" over the years. He was a special man.
