Dear Laurie and family, I am so sorry to hear of Harold’s passing. Connie and I and our family were greatly blessed by your friendship when we visited with you in your Normal, Illinois home. I pray God’s comfort for you all, and am grateful for the hope we all share in Christ. I, too, lost my spouse, Connie in 1992. We can all be encouraged knowing Harold and Connie are enjoying being in the presence of the Lord, worshiping around the throne. I have since remarried and have 3 additional children with Patricia: 2 girls age 22 and 21, and a son age 19. Pat and I make our home in Hatfield, PA (north of Philadelphia). I recently resigned my official duties as Assoc. Pastor at Pennridge Christian Fellowship, Blooming Glen, PA. Again, thank you for your friendship and faith that encouraged us. I pray God’s richest and choicest blessings to you all. John Reeser

Dear Laurie and Family, John and I were very saddened to hear of Harold's passing. I remember when we first met you both in Cape Coral Florida and we became instant friends. We had the pleasure of having you visit us in Canada and then were lucky to be able to visit with you in Colorado. Harold was a true gentlemen and it was a honour to call him my friend..

Laurie, sons, and family, I want to send my condolences!! I enjoyed my friendship with Harold and the smiles he brought to everyone he met. Truly a kind and caring man! It's true he will be sadly missed, but I will treasure the time I spent with Harold and the memories created by his presence!! Most of all, I will miss seeing Harold at the gym and starting our day off with humor, politics, etc. Will Malizia
