    I've never been good at words, but I want to express my thoughts because Uncle Harold was a kind man. I admired him for being dedicated in his job and serving our country in the Army NG. I admired him for loving his daughter and wife whole heartedly. To them, I'd like to say, draw upon the love, support and strength of your family and friends surrounding you now, and hold tight the many memories you have of him. My thoughts and prayers are with you...
