Terry and Family, I'm sorry to learn of your dad's passing. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Delores Haun Hayley, April 28, 2010 I worked with Harold on the Frisco Railroad and I recognized what an important part of Frisco he was when I would go to the Depot for my information and see how the townspeople depended on him for the local community government. Later after we had retired we would see him and Clara at the Railroad Conventions and my wife Wanda and I would always try to be sure we were seated at at the same table with them. They were such a wonderful couple. Isaac and Wanda Giddens Tulsa, OK Isaac and Wanda Giddens, April 16, 2010 I have many fond memories of Harold and Clara.

Jack Scott, Jr., April 12, 2010 I remember meeting Harold at the floor shop...we always ended up talking about the past and future of Frisco... how I wish I had taken him up on his offer to go the City council meetings together.... he was the friendliest, most welcoming person who made me feel completely certain that I had done the right thing in relocating to Frisco. I always saw him as a 1 man grass-roots goodwill ambassador for Frisco! Suzy A Esteves-Wild, April 12, 2010
