Seagroves Family:

I am so very sorry for the loss of Harold. I have so many memories or him, when I would run through his yard to go to my Ninnie’s house from my Dad’s or pick grapes off his vine. He was such a kind spirited man who always gave me a smile as he waved and yelled, “Hey Emily.” He will be missed by all and I wish you all peace during this very trying time. May God comfort and bless you all!
