Words can not express how much Mr. Glass meant to me. He brought a smile to my face everytime he came to see me at the bank. He would come and check to see how I was doing just about once a week if not more. He will truly be missed by all who loved him and his memory will be with me always. Please know he is in a better place and we will see him again. Lori Ferri

Lucretia, and your wonderful children. I was saddened today when Jerry called and told me of Uncle Harold's passing. I am at Edisto Island on vacation this week and was not able to attend the services. I am sure it was sad, but a beautiful "homecoming" for Harold. I have many fond memories of him in my life and while there were many miles, he definitely made a mark in my life. He always brought a smile to my little face as a child and as an adult, well, when I saw him at mom's funeral it solidified that he was truly a man of great charcter. My heart goes out to you all and my prayers are with you. Warmest and fond regards and love, Jan Glass

Leslie and family, Herb and I had just gotten back from Daytona when I saw the email from church about Mr. Harold. I was so shocked as I hadn't heard he was battling the cancer so bad! I wish I had seen him before he passed as your Dad was ALWAYS so nice and friendly to me. Always a kind word and such a cut-up! A real devil with the ladies you know! I will really miss him as I know all of you will! He always made me smile and laugh!
