Harold was as fine a man as you would ever want to know.  He was an awesome friend of the Griffith family since as far back as my memory goes.  RIP dear friend.

Please accept my condolences on the loss of your father. When I visited Somerset, I would run into him at a "coffee" place and always enjoyed his company.
