I’m very sorry to hear of Uncle Harold’s passing. He was a great man, and I’m lucky to always be able to count him as my family member. He had an endearing personality, and a good sense of humor. I’ll miss seeing him every year at the family reunion up at the Chicken House whittling away at a piece of wood, but I know he’s with Aunt Nina Jo and all the rest of the Qualls family.
God bless and much love from your cousin - John Power of Franklin, Tennessee
I am sorry that Harold has passed. He and I attended Medical Technology School in Asheville, NC in 1958. I visited him once at the Cookeville Hospital where he was working.
