Harold was always such a positive and strong man. His music was an inspiration and i hope he and my dad are playing some duets (with Harold on piano and Dad on the clarinet) as we speak. The illness and death are the toughest for us on earth and you will begin to feel God’s peace as time goes by.
So sorry for your loss, my Dad passed away in 84′, I will see him again one day. Peace for your family and friends.
My thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. I pray for comfort for you all in the days ahead.
Cynthia–I was so sorry to hear about your dad. I know how close you were to him. I totally understand that relationship between a dad and daughter. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.
A great father is a wonderful gift. I know the gratitude you feel will ease the pain of these days. And the Comforter will give his peace. We all rejoice in the promise of new life in Christ and cling to that promise in our sorrow. We love you, Gerald and Jean, and are praying for you and your family.
We continue to pray for all of you and rejoice with you in the influential and long life of your loved one. As a former USNR officer, I particularly appreciate his service to our country. As a former pastor, I also appreciate his witness, faithfulness, and work in his church for the Lord. May God’s grace and the comforting presence of the Holy Spirit undergird you as you celebrate a life well lived and an eternal life much deserved. Phil. 1:21. Prayerfully, Jerry
