Jessie, I’m so sad to hear of your tragic loss. I had met Harold a couple of times and talked about family during those times…he was a kind man with many interesting stories. Seeing you, as well, brings back fond memories of my grandmother (and your own mother, of course, who was her sister). May you be comforted by your memories and strengthened by those who are here to help you through this difficult time.

We fondly remember you folks, our visits to your home and all the services in old Grace Church. Those were very special years.
We are mindful of the everlasting comings and goings in all of our lives. We are in our tenth year here in Eastern Passage and blessed to have a grand daughter with a grand son due in October.
God grant eternal rest to Harold and his peace to all of you for the weeks and months to come.

Thinking of you, our sincere condolences to you, Jessie and family.May God bless.
Jessie, it is so hard to believe that Harold is gone. I will miss his stories and jokes. He was a kind and gentle man who enjoyed his family, his garden and he was most proud of his service over seas. I have not met a man as devoted to his family as Harold was for you he would have given the moon. The boys (walter and wayne) your father spoke of you with a gleam in his eye and the girls were spoken of proudly each time we met. Have faith and believe that he will always be with you watching and smiling . Jessie I am sorry that you could not have more years with Harold but I know you enjoyed the ones you had.Remember you are never alone and we are here when you need us. Kelly and Anne-Marie Scott
