    My family sends our deepest condolences. Though I did not know Harold real well, I always enjoyed seeing him at the family reunions. Those times will be cherished, but I look forward to the promise, in that Harold was saved by Jesus Christ! He is still very alive, laughing with the saints and praising his Savior. We will be having more laughs, hugs and good times with Harold. God Bless you Harold! Will be seeing you shortly!! All our love, Steve and Kim Sorenson
