As a child I remember us always going to Clinton, TN for family reunions - either at Aunt Opals or Aunt Marie's. Harold and Rose always made sure I was having fun. As I grew older, they would give me advice when I asked and hugged me when I was upset. We has a family lost an icon; heaven has gained a mighty angel. Love, Micki Marple (grand daughter of Mary Margaret Brown; daughter of Pat and Esther Marple)

I’ll never forget Aunt Rosie and Uncle Harolds trips to Illinois to see my grandparents. They’d talk for hours and have a lot of fun together. We love you uncle Harold!

I can remember when Rose & Harold would host the Ridings family reunion! We had such a good time having fellowship with everyone! He is such a good soul! Always had such a wonderful spirit about him. I know you all will certainly miss him. Praying for Rose, Diana & Family, Brian & Family, and all his extended family!!!
