    Harold was a great man and co-worker. We have missed his smiling face since he retired. We have alot of great memories of him with the City of Wilmington. He could always make me smile even when I was having a bad day. He will be missed. My condolences to Anna and family and may God give you peace and comfort during this difficult time.
