Here at Spring Farm Cares we are very sad to learn of Harold's death. He was very dear to all of us, humans and animals alike. The cats will miss him and we will miss his endless supply of (usually a wee bit naughty)jokes. There will always be an empty spot here in the hall without him. I began to worry when he stopped answering my emails. I realized that things were not going as well with the cancer as he had hoped. But now he is "up there," listening to the music he loves, and making the angels giggle at those jokes of his. With sincere sympathy, Bonnie and all at SFC

We shall miss you Harold, but know that you are no longer suffering and are at peace. Take care, God Bless until we meet again.
