Memories

Hazel & family, How sorry we are to hear about Harold. I can only say my earliest memories of Harold were a gentle, quiet, unassuming man, who definitley was kind enough, to have the patients to put up with us wild Indians hanging around his house as teenagers. And as time has gone by, we would only see each other at family functions, but he would always have a greeting, and smile on his face. The great children that Harold and Hazel have brought up, are a tribute to their parenting, and are some of our closest friends. God bless you all. Love, Diane & Jim

Memories

Carla, was nice to visit with you today. My deepest sympathy on the passing of your father. Both my parents are gone now and there are many times when I still miss them very much. Someday the memories will bring more smiles than tears. Have a blessed holiday season, in spite of your tears. We'll talk business in January and fun stuff if we run into each other sooner in a store somewhere! Sincerely, Peg Mundahl
