I am so sorry to see that Harold has passed away. He helped me with an Oregon history project for one of my classes at Portland State University a few years ago. I have a ~15 page personal history I wrote and some photos he shared with me. I am more than willing to share with family if anyone is interested. Again, I am so sorry for your loss.

This was such a shock! We will miss him. I'm sure there was a great rejoicing and a joyous noise from the boarder collies waiting at the rainbow bridge!

My prayers are with all of you who loved Harold. I had not met him personally, but know some of his family who are wonderful people. I am sure that Harold had a lot to do with that. God rest his soul.
