  1. Brother-in-law Carmen let me know yesterday that Harold had passed. Know it is a difficult time for Kalisa, Nancy, and Dick. Mom and Dad always said these times were the hardest to be so far away from family… and even though Larry and I grew up in South Carolina… Indiana is still “home” in a special corner of our hearts. Wish we could be there Monday. Hugs from Cousin Lloyd’s kids! joyce and larry
