Condolence from Noweta Nickeson ,and Dad, Vincent Oickle on March 6th, 2013 7:09 pm

To Aunt Doris, Marilyn and JoAnne
so shocked when I read this obituary of Uncle Harold’s passing, He was a sweet,kindhearted man, a true gentleman ,I have so many great Memories of growing up and spending some of my summers at their house in Brooklyn , while I babysit for someone in the Brooklyn area….Aunt Doris and Uncle Harold always treated me with kindness….then as the years passed, taking my own sons Ivan and Mitchell down to their house to visit their Great Nanny, Katie Whynot, while she lived with Doris and Harold.

…we may have grown apart over the years with life changes and families. ..but those great memories of Uncle Harold will never be forgotten….he was very much loved …my heartfelt sympathy to you Aunt Doris …you surely will miss him , as we all will

My Dad , Vincent , said he really liked Harold…and all the memories he will never forget…..he sends his heartfelt sympathy to you all…
sorry we were unable to attend the service , I had just gotten a new job, and only on for 2 weeks…so couldn’t get the time off so soon in a new job…and of course Dad doesn’t do funerals very well and wouldn’t go alone..

just know we are thinking of you all…and someday , we shall all see Uncle Harold and that cute smile, that kind voice ..and be together again
