  1. Our thoughts and prayers are with you Marg, Eric, Sarah and Ryan at this difficult time. You just need to remember what a great sister you were and that God knows when our time is to go home no matter what we do to prevent it. Love you guys.

  2. I am so sorry for the families loss. I remember Harold as a little boy who lived with his Aunt and cousins. My sister Marilyn was a good friend of the family and my memory of Harold was that I gave him my train set when I had outgrown it. Blessings to you all.

  3. I just heard of Harold’s passing. While I didn’t know him very well, he attended the same Special Olympics bowling program as my son. He was friendly and outgoing and I found myself having many conversations with him. I learned one very important thing from Harold, he shared that he didn’t like to be spoken to any differently than anyone else. He told me that he was an adult, regardless of his disability, and wanted to be spoken to as an adult. I found these words very poignant and they have stuck with me over the years. Thank you Harold. We can all learn from this.
