Dear Aunt Betty, Stephen, Nancy, Michelle, Michael, and family --

I am so sorry to learn of Uncle Harold's passing. I have so many wonderful memories of Uncle Harold while growing up -- his love of life, his story telling, and his gift of making others laugh -- will stay with me all the days of my life.

With sympathy and love,
Diane (Sullivan) Mahan
