Debbie and I were sad to hear of Harold's passing. Early memories for me centered around farming and Harold sold my dad a really nice Massey 510 (if I remember correctly) and we so exacted to have one of "Harold Blanchard's Combines!" Rarely saw him not in good spirits and I enjoyed the brief conversations I had with him even after he moved into the City of Lamar. He will be missed, but I know he is home with his Savior now and what a blessing that is.

I never knew Harold that well but a legacy of a great family he leaves behind. I know you all will miss him. So sorry for your loss.
