    We send our sympathies to your family. Harold was our neighbor when we lived in Waupun several years ago–he was a good man and will be missed by many.

    Our thoughts and prayers are with you in this time of sorrow. Although this a painful time, try to focus on the wonderful memories you have. We did that tonight when we remembered spending time at your house, ice skating on the rink in your backyard and Harold sharpening the boys skates…and unfortunately cutting himself in the process! Also visiting with him when we all went to the Alto fair or when he came to our house with your family on a trip to see the circus parade. Keep all of those precious memories close to your heart. Love, The Gat
