Trudy and Brad
So sorry to hear of Harold's passing. I did just hear of it 1 hour ago. Harold was my favorite growing up -always a fun guy, always so interesting. A long life lived, Uncle Harold did many different things and always had a good story for me. I never heard the man complain once ... I did not see him in these last years. I will remember forever how happy it made me to see him- when I had the chance.

Dear Trudy, Your father was so kind to share with me when I visited WC a few years ago that he felt I had an impact on your recovery as a child as I was a nurse at the hospital and specialed you the night you were admitted and were so sick. He was proud of your accomplishments as an adult and told me how bright you were when they were not certain if you would have damage from the illness. May you be comforted at this time of sorrow. Aloha, Nancy Airhart (Bob)
