Dear Mrs. Nyhuis, I would like to extend my condolences on the passing of your husband. You knew my father, Bill O'Connor, who died in March and were very kind to stop by the funeral home at that time. I will keep you and your family in my thoughts and prayers.

Dear Virginia You have my deepest sympathy in Harold’s passing. I apologies for not attending the funeral. I was not aware of his passing until Tuesday afternoon. When I saw you both at KCC in March he looked like the same Harold that I have always known. He always seemed to be smiling. Harold and I grew up together, and although we didn’t see each other very often in our adult years, I always considered Harold as one of my very best friends. He is sadly missed. Viv Lock
