Oh I just found out today about Harold. So sad to hear of his passing. He sold me a horse (haas), for my daughter when little. We have spoken in stores & at his barn many times over the years! So sorry for his sister Wilma who Ive also spoken with many times. I will miss our talks! Prayers for the family!

Harold Dean was a good man. He had a big heart. I looked forward to our visits at Lincoln school while we each waited to pick up our grandchild. I considered him my friend! Bill Absher
