So sorry to hear about Harold. I realize he has been sick for awhile but it is still hard to lose loved ones. I remember spending time at camp with your family, Jane and our trip to Bermuda. We had some wonderful times and good memories. We will be in Florid until Fall because I have a medical issue but hope to see you sometime late fall. Love to you all.

Jane, Craig, Dana and family, I am so sorry for your loss. I remember Harold fondly, especially when I wiped out on my bike in Picard's driveway and Roger ran me through the fields, passed me off to Harold, and he ran me the rest of the way home. I was crying and bleeding and he was wearing a white t shirt. He didn't think twice. I remember a Halloween party at your house as well, and the Snokeldorf house we made on the bank front our lawn to yours one winter. I have fond memories of each of you and your dogs, Fritz and Meatball. Harold was a very nice man and forever my hero because of that day he and Roger Sr. ran me to my parents. My heart is with you all. On behalf of the Hatch family, p...lease accept our deepest sympathies.Read more
