We enjoyed 4 years of high school together and many years of friendship afterwards.
We shared laughter and tears of joy. We shared our hearts our secrets, our secret handshake and much love! Until we meet again! Namaste dear heart!

Harold, May the angels lead you into paradise; may the martyrs come to welcome you and take you to the holy city, the new and eternal Jerusalem."

May choirs of angels welcome you
and lead you to the bosom of Abraham; and where Lazarus is poor no longer may you find eternal rest. 

Eternal rest grant onto him O Lord!

Harold loved the "Fragile" lamp from the Chirstmas Story movie. I bought him a miniature one for Christmas. I will appreciate his kindness when I worked with him at the store. He is truly an Angel.
