Please accept my sincere condolences over the loss of Harold. I lived in Crozet for over twenty years and he was like a member of our family. From the Record Shop video store to the ice cream truck to the IGA/CGV, we always loved his warmth and his ever ready smile. He was such a good man and friend. RIP Harold. Best wishes to your family.

Dear Mrs. Burnette and family,
Please accept my deepest sympathy on the passing of Harold. My husband and I shopped at IGA quite often and Harold was a ray of sunshine every time we saw him. He had the most wonderful smile and always had something funny and kind to say. My husband is deceased now, but he thought so highly of Harold also.
We also looked forward to the summer when he came around with his ice cream truck, that was the highlight of our evening.
You all were so blessed to have him in your lives. Keep the happy memories alive every day!

I'm so sorry to hear of the loss of another one of my school mates of Warren County High. I was just looking at his comment to me in my yearbook, and he was smiling there; he was such a sweet person. May God's precious arms hold the family tight during this time of bereavement.
