Rest in peace, cousin Harold. I will always have memories of you when we were young and you came to St Louis to visit, or I visited you in Baton Rouge. As adults, we remained in contact with each other. Our fathers were brothers, and they would have been proud of the relationship you, Fate and I had. Auntie brought us together, and insisted we keep in contact with each other. She would have been proud too. Cousin Albert.

Harold was a favorite cousin of mine. He loved coming to St Louis to visit. As a young boy, he visited our Aunt and Uncle who introduced him to the Cardinals Baseball team. As an adult he kept up with them and would mention something about them in letters he wrote to me. We were penpals. He loved to write, and receive letters. Rest in peace, Harold. We will be pen pals forever. Cousin Verna
