Default Lost an old friend yesterday!

My friend Harold passed away at 91 years of age. I knew him through the construction business for years as he was a Foreman and Field Tech for Minneapolis Honeywell. He did the temp controls and monitoring systems for large transformers and switchgear among other things. Another WW2 veteran lost to us. A great guy and family man. One more funeral to go to.

RIP Harold Pudvah.

Sorry to hear this. The loss of a good friend leaves an empty spot that is hard to fill.

Sad to hear this Butch. WWII vets, we lose them every day. A great loss because frankly, they fought the last war that was actually for defending our country.

They make excellent friends you can count on. I know. My best friend is my Father-in-law. 94 and soon to be passing on from cancer.

I will miss him.

Sorry for your loss.

Sorry to hear of your loss.

It's a sad fact that the older we get, the fewer friends that are left to bring us joy.

Sorry for your loss. I lost an old coworker and friend too yesterday. She's with her husband now and no longer suffering.

It's never easy but it's a fact of life.
