Harold, you were always Joyce's protector, and even in death, you couldn't let her go alone. We will always remember your smiling face, your wave from the mailbox, and your fun stories. Now you're at peace in Heaven with Joyce, and while she's playing bridge, you're shooting par rounds of golf or winning the pot in poker. You and Joyce were so blessed to have darling Tami and Ty care for you, and I want you to ask God to please watch over them, because it's been quite a blow to lose both of you in a week. Bless you dear friend! Marci & Keith Meyer, November 13, 2020 I remember all the times our family would visit together. Harold and Joyce, my uncle and aunt, were so much fun. My Dad would drive us to where y’all lived, Tulsa, Wichita Falls, Shreveport and more, to visit his brother Harold. The adults would play cards and dominoes and us cousins, Tim and Tami and my brother Van and myself would play together. Harold you were a huge blessing to your family and so many people will miss you here on earth, and long to see you again with our Lord. Our memories of you are eternal. Kyle Holland, November 13, 2020
