Rest In Peace Dear Harold.
You were taken from your family and friends far too early. I write this on 1st April 2012 having brought your name up on Google and wish this were an April Fools prank.
We were friends in our "Toowoomba" days. Our lives went in different directions and sadly we lost touch over the years.

You were unique and we will miss you terribly.
My mind goes back to the day Judy introduced us. We had good times together.
