|We grieve, but "not as others do who have no hope. For since we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so, through Jesus, God will bring with him those who have fallen asleep. Therefore comfort one another with these words. 1 Thes. 4:13-18|
"We were blessed to spend some time with you during our years in Burns and at First Baptist and especially in your home. Dear Margaret, God is faithful, you have leaned on Him a long time and have been a dear care giver to Harold. Our Saviour never leaves nor forsakes us, He will continue to be your guide...my acrostic for guide is G- od, U-nderstands, I-individual, D-esires, E-everday......I know your desire is to please HIM in all you do and our Lord will meet all your needs but don't let folks fool you......You will Miss Your Best Friend and Love of Your Life Peggy Overbey"
"When I came to Dickson in 1978 I first met Harold at First Baptist Church on Monday morning he came to my store to welcome me to Dickson and for the next 35 years he hardly ever missed a week stopping by for a visit and what a joy it always was to see him no matter how bad the day was going I always felt better after his visit. Although we didn't spend a lots of time together I always knew that he was a friend I could count on if I needed him . I don't know anyone that I have more respect for than Harold ! I knew him to be a kind, respectful
Christian man . I pray for comfort for his family in knowing that we will be reunited with Harold in the presence of Jesus ! !"
"Harold was truly one of the sweetest, kindest people I ever met. He always had a big smile and a gentle spirit. I enjoyed showing up on Harold and Margaret's doorstep over the years when I would come home from China....and they ALWAYS welcomed me in! :) Sorry we can't be there for the Celebration of his life but we celebrate him in a land far, far away! Much love to Margaret and all of you."
"Thank you Harold for the life you lived and the example you set for your family and friends. Only a man with Jesus in his heart could live the life you lived with so much love and compassion for everyone. Sure enjoyed having you along on a few coonhunts and for bringing David along to share in our fun. I still have the hand warmer you guys gave me 40 years ago when we were wondering around in the wilderness. Praying for your family members left behind who will miss you greatly but have joy in their hearts because you are now safely in your Heavenly Home."
