I only heard of Mr. Harold's passing today. I send his family my deepest condolences. I worked with Mr. Harold at Bridgestone for many years. He always came by my machine and made sure to say Hi and ask how I was doing everyday. He was the nicest sweetest man and he always made me feel happy when I saw him. Such a great man and he will be missed terribly. Keeping your family in my prayers always.

Janie, Clay and myself and all of our children are heartbroken for you and your children. We are so, so very sorry. Words seem so empty. Thankful for your faith and praying you will know and feel God's presence in a mighty way. Our family was together when we heard and Jacob immediately shared how Harold had been so kind and good to him. I wasn't aware of any particular relationship between the two. Jacob went on to say that he was selling cars ( a time in Jacob's life when he was still trying to find his "way back" after some years of wandering). Apparently Harold not only bought a car from Jacob but he spent quality time affirming Jacob and speaking good into his life. I never knew of that interaction but it obviously meant a lot to Jacob then and still does to this day. (And you know it means a lot to this mama all these years later!) Our love and prayers for you all. Trusting God to give you His peace, His strength, and His comfort.

Knew Harold from working at Firestone Plant. He was such a nice man. He was very active with coaching young kids at Lee Woodard and Beddingfield HS. He will truly be missed. May GOD comfort the family during this sad time.

Mrs. Yelverton, I spoke with you by phone the first evening your husband was off the ventilator. You asked me to be sure to tell him how much you loved him. I made a special effort to be sure he was alert enough to understand me when I shared your message. What I never got the chance to do was to tell you how much he perked up and brightly repeated several times, "PLEASE tell her how much I love her, too." It broke my heart to learn that he had continued to weaken and may not have been able to tell you this again himself. This may not be the best format but it is the only means I could find to share this interaction with you. I wanted you to know with sincere hope that it would bring you some comfort.

By all reports and messages given about Harold, he was obviously an extraordinarily well respected friend, coworker, grandfather, father, brother and husband. Many fond memories will be shared as long as he lives in the hearts of those who loved Harold.

I am so sorry to hear of Harold's passing. Another good guy gone from us way too soon. Harold was easy going and never passed you by without speaking or waving. I never heard him say an unkind word of anybody.

I am so sorry to hear of Harold's passing, I played basketball and graduated from Lee Woodard High with his brother Jim but I've always admired the talent, friendliness and sportsmanship that Harold had each time we talked and he watched us play. His wife Janie was an excellent school teacher when I was a Dare instructor in her classroom at Stantonsburg school. Mrs Yelverton, My prayers are with you all.
