  8. Heidi Hopper Says:

    Fond memories growing up across the street from the Klein residence. Grandpa and Grandma always thought so much of Harold and Bernice and I will always remember how active Harold was…always tending to the pond he built and the flowers that surrounded it. Out mowing the yard in a mask… Chilling in front of the tv when Bernice was in her seamstress area…
    Really takes me back… brings back memories of Grandpa and Grandma that were also filed in my mind.
    Thank you for being such great people and thank you for the trip down memory lane.

  9. Brian McAnany Says:

    Bernice and family. Just now finding out Harold passed away.
    This poem always gives me comfort and I hope it does you also.Death Is Nothing At All
    By Henry Scott-Holland

    Death is nothing at all.
    It does not count.
    I have only slipped away into the next room.
    Nothing has happened.

    Everything remains exactly as it was.
    I am I, and you are you,
    and the old life that we lived so fondly together is untouched, unchanged.
    Whatever we were to each other, that we are still.

    Call me by the old familiar name.
    Speak of me in the easy way which you always used.
    Put no difference into your tone.
    Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow.

    Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes that we enjoyed together.
    Play, smile, think of me, pray for me.
    Let my name be ever the household word that it always was.
    Let it be spoken without an effort, without the ghost of a shadow upon it.

    Life means all that it ever meant.
    It is the same as it ever was.
    There is absolute and unbroken continuity.
    What is this death but a negligible accident?

    Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight?
    I am but waiting for you, for an interval,
    somewhere very near,
    just round the corner.

    All is well.
    Nothing is hurt; nothing is lost.
    One brief moment and all will be as it was before.
    How we shall laugh at the trouble of parting when we meet again!

    R.I.P Harold.

Leave a Condolence.
