It was a pleasure to meet Harold, a couple years ago, when my uncle was his roommate. Harold had a delightful and gentle spirit. I also knew Mrs. Lent when she worked at Center Street School, a pleasure too. I am so glad he enjoyed The Daily Star. I am truly sorry for your loss. He will remain in my heart forever, and what a lovely photo. Blessings, Marcia
