So sorry to hear this Mary Jane. Although I don't think I ever met Harold, my husband Tom and I were also married in 1971, in September. I know that losing him would be the hardest thing would ever have to do, and I'm sure you are hurting. Know that our thoughts and prayers (Terri, Toni & Tammi Henry) are with you. God bless your days ahead.

Mary and Family, I am very sorry to hear of Harolds passing. Know that he is no longer in any pain and is completely healed now. You all are in our prayers. I will always remember Harold for how he always treated Tony and myself like we were his when we were young and always at your house. The summer we came to visit Dad right after our Mom passed, Harold parked that Fenton Bros truck when he got home and made his way right across the street where all us kids were playing and he gave me and Tony big hugs and told us how sorry he was. That is the Harold McCahill I will always remember.
