"I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die." John 11:25,26

We know for certain that we never lose the people we love, even to death.  They continue to participate in every act, thought, and decision we make.  Their words, actions, and love leave a never ending imprint in our memories and heart.    We find comfort in knowing that we are forever changed by their presence. 

Harold  - we will be forever grateful for your kindness, teachings, and smiles.  Rest in Peace.
