    I am so sad of Harold’s passing. He was one of the neatest guys I have ever met. I loved getting his emails, being teased about his morel mushrooms that he wouldn’t share with me & the times at Gun Lake with him. He was so loved! Prayers for the entire family. May you all find comfort & peace in the love of others.

    Harold always had a smile and a story to tell us when we saw him in the store (Weick’s). He was easy to pick on, and he could always give it back. May your memories bring you comfort and peace. God bless you.
