    Dear, dear Rock--there are no words...heaven has a new angel, without a doubt. Know that my thoughts and prayers are with you and yours. I would do anything within my power to ease your loss and pain. I cannot be at the service in person, but I will be there in spirit. Funny, I saw a photo yesterday of someone who could have been Harold's twin...I think that was his way of telling us that Jerri arrived safely home. Love you, my friend. Blessings, Sharon (aka Shari)
