    I am very saddened by the passing of my uncle Harold. He was my mom’s brother and although it has been several years since I have seen him, I’ll never forget him. He was a favorite uncle of mine and always treated me with kindness and respect. Whenever we saw each other or talked on the phone he always seemed happy to visit with me and he was always interested in what was going on in my life, and always made me feel special. I loved my uncle Harold, and I will truly miss him.
