A poem in remembrance of Harold:

Jokes all around,

Warm hands to hold,

A heart so full of joy,

His faced turn upward on a sunny day,

Sitting on the swing the world went by,

Friend a plenty,

You were never turned away,

Kind words were always said,

Advice was always free,

His heart was always open,

A loving hug was not lost,

Only given twice as much,

Old stories told with family and friends,

Laughter all around,

A daughter lost but now found,

Made his heart overflow,

Love was never in short supply,

Eyes were always open,

Fans were always on,

 He listened to your story,

 He helped you along the way,

Harold was a man of many talents,

But the best talent of all,

Was the love he gave to us.
