Betty, Eric, Adam, and family,

Our deepest sympathies go out to you. Harold was someone that gave anyone the time, effort, and support they needed without asking anything in return.

As we drove past some historical markers on old national road today they made me think of him and I told Jennifer and the kids about his scrapbook of those signs.

His presence will be missed, but he will always be with you.

Sorry for your loss Eric. Your family is in my prayers. He was a good man and I remember back when I would watch you coaching hockey, he would always have something to say that would make me laugh. Rest in Peace Mr. Cunningham.
