From: Kerry Doyle
Relation: Harold was my AA Mentor and a very good friend

I’m very sorry to hear of Harold’s passing. He worked with my wife Patty at Allied for many years. It was through that connection that he began his work with me and my journey in AA. Over the past 30 years he became a mentor and good friend. I attended many of his AA cakes hearing him say time and time again “If I take you where will you take me” I know that he and Marge are together again and I know that that would make him and her very happy. I will miss a great deal. I am very disheartened that I missed his service. I know many AA memebers who feel the same. I have a medallion I bought for him but I never got to give to him. I’d like to place it with him at Greendale Cementry if the family approves. I would also like to ask permission to do a Celebration of Life for Harold at the Alano Club in Abbotsford. Muself and his many friends in AA will gladly look after this. Please let me know Kerry Doyle 604-226-6075
